(Bloomberg)  ECB likely to keep its rates low until 2016 – The European Central Bank’s (ECB) Governing Council Member Ewald Nowotny said the ECB is unlikely to raise its interest rates from record lows until 2016, when the Eurozone economy is expected to pick up more strongly. He said interest rates will turn as soon as there is clear growth of more than 2%, but from today's perspective that will hardly be before 2016. He said a recovery in the Eurozone was showing only signs of green shoots and the ECB's cheap money was not always making its way to companies wanting to borrow. He said the psychological mood is lacking a bit. Meanwhile, the ECB has forecast that the Eurozone economy would grow between 0.5% and 3.1% in 2016. Earlier on June 5, the ECB had cut interest rates to record lows and its deposit rate to below zero, while launching a series of steps to boost lending to companies.

The report, known as the ‘Flash PMI’, is typically based on 85% to 90% of responses to the purchasing managers’ survey at more than 420 companies. Meanwhile, another private report, known as China Beige Book, a quarterly survey modeled on the US Federal Reserve report, showed that China’s economic slowdown deepened this quarter, as capital spending showed weakness and fewer companies applied for credit. The slowdown hurt hiring and wages, and interest rates offered by shadow lenders fell below levels offered by banks.
