A multi-strategy note from analysts at Morgan Stanley has outlined the implications for the markets after the European Central Bank’s announcement of quantitative easing.
The announcement by ECB president Mario Draghi that the central bank will purchase €60bn per month of debt from euro-zone governments, agencies and institutions for at least the 18 months from March 2015 went "beyond market expectations" and the bank's own forecasts and should therefore be viewed as a "positive surprise", Morgan Stanley said.
