ECB seen conducting quantitative easing by March by buying ABS-Reuters poll

Aug 28 (Reuters) – The European Central Bank will probably
launch a quantitative easing programme by March and buy
asset-backed securities in a bid to prevent deflation and
jumpstart economic growth in the region, a Reuters poll found on
Thursday.

Speculation that the ECB is preparing a programme of asset
purchases has soared after its president, Mario Draghi, last
week said the bank was prepared to respond with all its
available tools if inflation were to drop further.

One-in-three chance the ECB conducts QE next year: Reuters poll

By Sumanta Dey

(Reuters) – There is a one-in-three chance the European Central Bank will embark on an asset purchase program in 2015, prompted by rising risks of deflation and no signs of any vigorous economic recovery, a Reuters poll found.

So far the central bank has resisted such a move, which would involve buying sovereign bonds or asset-backed securities, providing instead another round of temporary access to cheap cash for banks, targeted at increasing lending.

Rupee unlikely to strengthen more, yuan to rise slowly: Reuters Poll

BANGALORE (Reuters) – The rupee is likely to struggle to gain any more over the next 12 months as a U.S. dollar rally gathers pace on hopes of a strong economic recovery there, while the Chinese yuan is expected to appreciate a little, a Reuters poll found.

The rupee had a stellar first six months of 2014, rising almost 3 percent, first on expectations of a majority government led by Narendra Modi and then following through on the election result. Between January and July, India’s stock market soared 22 percent.
