In his speech today, Mario Draghi maintained the structure of his last talk. Constrained by the obvious reality, he had to admit the lent pace of recovery and the long list of problems that are not yet solved, as the weak conditions in the labour market and the economic slowdown. On the other hand, the accommodative position of the monetary policy together with the improvements made since mid-2012 and the banking union system should keep the stability of the euro zone.
The heart of Euro zone, Germany, is pumping the same weak and negative sentiment about the current economic situation, announcing a contraction of -0.1% in the industrial production as well as a decreasing trade balance (14.1B). It is difficult to expect positive results in an environment dominated by instability and lack of trust in the Government’s institutions. On the long term, we may be witnessing of improved conditions if the pace of restructuring is maintained.
