Comments from Lagarde in the Q&A

Comments from Lagarde in the Q&A
  • We want durable 2% inflation. It can oscillate a bit
  • Inflation cannot be below 2% for rates to rise
  • No one wants to tighten prematurely
  • PEPP was not discussed
  • Capex is picking up, a sign of optimism
Lagarde's comments are having very little impact on markets. Everyone is already pricing in bottomed-out rates indefinitely.
