"We note that the US-German 2-year interest rate differential is above 20 bp and is at the upper end of its six month range, even though EONIA remains elevated."

"The only euro area economic report to note today seemed to confirm the recovery in the German economy, with the ZEW survey showing the current assessment was stronger than expected (41.2 vs. 35.0 consensus and 32.4 in December), while the expectations component remained elevated at 61.7 (vs. 62 in December and a Bloomberg consensus for 64). It is the first decline in the expectations measure in six months."
