BCE mantém juros baixos e programa de ativos

Abertura dos mercados Bolsas corrigem de máximos e euro atinge recorde de 2014 na véspera do BCE

Abertura dos mercados Bolsas corrigem de máximos e euro atinge recorde de 2014 na véspera do BCE

O dólar no mercado à vista renovou mínima, aos R$ 3,1323 (-1,30%) no balcão nesta quinta-feira, 25.

Os mercados foram reagindo às palavras de Draghi, com o euro a valorizar inicialmente face ao dólar, começando depois a abrandar, após a garantia do banqueiro central de não subir os juros em 2018.

Indagado em uma entrevista coletiva sobre as perspectivas de uma guerra cambial global, Draghi reafirmou a política do banco de não mirar uma taxa de câmbio.

"Se tudo isso levar a um indesejado aperto em nossa política monetária... então teremos que pensar sobre nossa estratégia de política monetária", disse Draghi, citando que vários diretores do BCE expressaram preocupação.

"O Conselho do BCE espera que as taxas de juro diretoras do BCE permaneçam nos níveis atuais durante um período alargado e muito para além do horizonte das compras líquidas de ativos", sublinha a instituição liderada por Mario Draghi em comunicado.

Mesmo que a economia da zona do euro melhore, um euro mais forte ameaça segurar a inflação e coloca em risco o trabalho feito em anos de estímulos, provavelmente forçando Draghi a jogar "água fria" sobre as expectativas crescentes de que o BCE está a caminho de elevar as taxas de juros.

Alguns minutos antes, no comunicado publicado no final da reunião, o BCE tinha mantido exactamente na mesma a política anunciada, nomeadamente a compra de 30 mil milhões ao mês de dívida pública até pelo menos Setembro e a manutenção das taxas de juro ao nível actual até "bem depois" do fim do programa de compras. Também não houve mexidas no programa de compra de ativos. "Podemos declarar vitória? A resposta é não, não ainda", disse Mario Draghi, salientando que "as pressões de preços estão controladas e a inflação subjacente não dá sinais de movimentos ascendentes convincentes".
