    • Heightening the risk of a slide toward deflation, Eurostat today reported the largest decline in consumer prices in the eurozone since July 2009.
    • Consumer prices were 0.6% lower than in January 2014, having fallen 0.2% on an annual basis in December.
    • The plunge in consumer prices is unlikely to have an immediate effect on the ECB's €60B/month QE package, although the longer prices stay in negative territory, the more pressure the central bank will have to extend the program.
    • FTSE 100 -0.6%; DAX -0.5%; CAC 40 -0.7%; Euro Stoxx 50 -0.5%.

    Italian, Spanish and Austrian government bond yields are higher ahead of auctions next week due to the usual worries over Greece, Spain and Hungary, although  sentiment on the latter is improving. Despite ECB intervention, Italian 10-year yields +3 bps at 7.12%, Spain +5 bps at 5.68%, and Austria +12 bps at 3.49%.

    Following encouraging discussions with Moody's, Austrian Finance Minister Maria Fekter expresses confidence the country will keep its AAA rating. It's a boost given that Austria has begun to feel some heat in the debt markets lately. Yields on 10-year bonds are +3 bps at 3.43%.

    Analysts need to look at their charts. While some version of “we’re in a phase where markets are reacting very nervously to individual statements and rumors about the debt crisis,” hits the wires multiple times/day, European shares and the euro march higher, with some bourses at multi-year highs.

    Ignoring, or perhaps because of increasing pressure from its government, Hungary's central bank raises interest rates 25 basis points to 6% It's the 3rd hike in 3 months as the bank gets work done before the governing party can fill 4 vacant seats on the policy-setting committee.
