EVERYTHING AS EXPECTED? (0533 GMT)
European stock futures are slightly higher after yesterday's
ECB policy meeting ended in line with analysts' expectations,
and U.S. data supports the Fed's view that the current inflation
will be transitory.
The European central bank reaffirmed its pledge to buy bonds
at a "significantly higher" pace while raising its growth and
U.S. CPI data were above consensus, but much of the price
surge came from commodities and airfares, seen as temporary.
The only thing that can now move the needle would be
mentioning the 'tapering' word at next week's Fomc, which is
seen as unlikely.
