"It would be surprising if the ECB cut rates already in April," Sander Tordoir, senior analyst at the Centre for European Reform (CER), told Euractiv.

"The Governing Council [the ECB’s rate-setting body] has clearly signalled they want to wait for May wage data," he stressed.

He added: "The insurance bias to guard against a reacceleration of inflation will likely dominate any data releases pointing to faster disinflation."
