    ECB’s Vitor Constancio, while speaking in New York, said no one knows how far negative rates could go while adding that low rates are primarily implemented to impact and lower short end rates (short duration bond yields).

    He further stated that markets are signaling lack of trust in growth and inflation; something the ECB will take into consideration.

    Constancio also said inflation would have been much lower if it were not for ECB’s measures.
