- Germany's Bundesbank is willing to support significant ECB stimulus if the latter's inflation forecasts for the period through 2016 are lowered, the WSJ reports.
- Measures could include a negative rate on bank deposits and purchases of packaged bank loans as the Bundesbank lends its weight to the battle to stop low inflation becoming permanent and even becoming deflation. However, the bank is still resistant to large-scale purchases of public and private debt.
- Still, the Bundesbank's readiness to counter stimulus marks a departure from its traditionally strong opposition to such action.
