The market information is always a crucial input into the European Central Bank’s decisions it doesn’t always “serve us well”, said Isabel Schnabel, Member of the Executive Board of the European Central Bank, while speaking at the Barclays International Monetary Policy Forum on Thursday.

Schnabel also noted that she doesn’t think asset prices and house prices should be included while measuring inflation.
