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.
