The benchmark interest rate in Germany is set by the European Central Bank. The European Central Bank is expected to leave monetary policy unchanged during its 1st meeting of 2021, after expanding its Pandemic Emergency Purchase Programme (PEPP) by another €500 billion and extending it to at least the end of March 2022 last month. However, investors see the central bank reiterating its commitment to adjust policy as and when necessary, leaving the door open to further stimulus, amid mounting infections and fresh lockdowns. Traders will also keep an eye on ECB President Lagarde comments at the regular press conference regarding the near-term outlook and risks surrounding the baseline scenario. The pandemic is far from controlled in Europe and countries continue to tight restrictions but some downside risks have faded since last month: coronavirus vaccination rollout already began although at a slow pace and a Brexit deal has been done. source: European Central Bank
