Bundesbank Chief Axel Weber: Withdrawal Consequences

Resignation announcement with implications for interest rates? The debt crisis in the euro zone, such as the impact on the European interest rate policy were the thematic priorities of the Bundesbank President Axel Weber. Now he wants to withdraw is, surprisingly, for many from his position and also the successor of Jean-Claude Trichet, the head of the European Central Bank (ECB) seems to be not an issue for him. Although he no longer available for a second term in the spring of 2012, his announcement now ensures excitement, because many financial experts see potential effects on the current lease. The change of leadership in the executive suite of the Deutsche Bundesbank could affect the strategy of the ECB and thus have an influence on the further development of the interest rate. Axel Weber did all his knowledge to the stability of the euro and still sees the risk of global inflation.

With him, you could economically at the European Central Bank not to the acquisition of bonds ailing States set. Rather, price stability and an independent Central Bank system are his thing, what brought him increasingly in an isolated position. In what form the successor to Weaver, Jens Weidmann, the course is maintained, wait. But who needs a loan, should keep in the long term the development of building interest in the eye. Experts assume that emerging a trend on the basis of the market-affecting issues and suggests a fluctuating development of interest rate market. The low interest rates of the European Central Bank has lagged behind the rising inflation rate.

In the long term is to be expected with an increase. The still existing low level of interest rates should be used now by borrowers over a long interest binding to protect themselves against a rise in interest rates. Although for a period of 15 years building interest higher than currently 0.4 per cent, for a ten-year interest rate, worth the premium for the interest of safety. The development of the capital interest could already in the second Half of the year bring a slight interest rate hike, even if the ECB key interest rate should only increase in the coming year. A.
