After 3 consecutive months of drop in inflation for the European country, it has now flatlined. Inflation is not the issue for Germany and other European countries, what has been and continues to be the concern is lack of economic growth. Recent economic figures would suggest that ECB are in a good place to start quantitative easing. Therefor it will be of interest to hear what is mention in this afternoon speech from ECB member Schnabel.

This morning we can see that UK unemployment rose from 4.2% to 4.3% in March.
