ECB Could Buy Gold To Revive Economy.
Declining economic data may "theoretically" leave the door open for the European Central Bank to buy assets including gold and shares
Gold, shares, and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) - the European Central Bank (ECB) may turn to buying any or all of these in an attempt to boost inflation in the currency bloc.
Yves Mersch, a member of the ECB’s executive board, said that the purchase of these assets was “theoretically” an option for the central bank, which earlier this year resolved to “take further unconventional measures to counteract a length period of lower inflation”.
His speech, delivered in German, came as official statistics published on Friday showed inflation of just 0.4pc in the year to October.
Very low levels of inflation were characterised by Mr Mersch as “abnormally low”, as price growth remained well below the ECB’s target of close to 2pc.
The official said that while there was scope to buy such assets, the ECB is about to embark on a programme of asset-backed securities purchases.
“Every purchase of a security - or precious metal or foreign currency - naturally increases the credit risk of the buyer”, he added, noting that the ECB may lack a mandate to increase the risk of its balance sheet.
Mr Mersch, a Luxembourgian, is often seen as leaning towards the position of the ECB’s German members - hesitant to pursue monetary stimulus in an attempt to revive the eurozone.
The euro area as a whole has just managed to dodge a triple-dip recession according to data published on Friday, posting growth of 0.2pc in the third quarter of the year.
While the economic data has worsened, so has the mood of forecasters. On Thursday an ECB poll of professional economists showed that inflation and and growth are expected to remain weak. The Telegraph."
