“Given the spate of uncertainties and the weakening economy already witnessed in 2019, coupled with the latest ECB announcements, we no longer expect an ECB rate hike in December; nor do we expect any noteworthy increase in 10Y yields on a 12M horizon.In other words, we expect the benchmark Bund yield to be trading in a tight -0.1% to +0.25% range throughout 2019, with mainly risk appetite determining at which end of that range yields would be. For the next couple of months, we expect yields to trade at the lower end of this range. However, as some of the risks disappear and growth starts to improve, which is still our baseline scenario, yields could move to the high end of the range.
