Euro zone sovereign yields rebounded (bond prices fell) following comments made by Mr Jens Weidmann – the head of the German Central Bank (the Bundesbank) – in which he was reported as saying that the European Central Bank (ECB) is risking letting its monetary policy run too loose in the face of rising inflation. The ECB’s latest forecasts show that inflation is expected to reach 1.7% in 2019 which is slightly under the 2% target.
