Banks will pay 0.5% below the depo rate if they meet certain lending conditions and 0.5% below the MRO rate otherwise. <\/li><\/ul><ul class=\"ucrBullets\"><li><strong> The attractive pricing should lead to a large take-up: <\/strong> EUR\u00a0900-1,400bn gross and EUR 550-1,000bn net, adding the four operations. Net demand includes EUR\u00a0325bn already drawn from the bridge LTRO.<\/li><\/ul><ul class=\"ucrBullets\"><li> As the more favorable pricing applies to the period June 2020 \u2013 June 2021, we expect strong front loading at the June operation (settlement 24 June 2020, maturity June 2023, results to be announced on 18 June). <\/li><\/ul><ul class=\"ucrBullets\"><li> We expect that use of T-LTRO III liquidity will be more pronounced in the periphery than in core countries.<\/li><\/ul><ul class=\"ucrBullets\"><li> The need to temporary park liquidity may benefit the short end of sovereign curves, in particular in the periphery, where credit premiums and liquidity parking needs are expected to be stronger. Past experience, however, suggests not to expect big moves in credit spreads.<\/li><\/ul>","synopsisDe":"","synopsisIt":"","hash":"88204f0aa7a4eb4281ab6c14a52d727f0e070fdafa5d4ce4eb0db334bd47e4c1","available":"0","settings":{"layout":"detailed","size":"default","showanalysts":"-1","showcompanies":"-1","showcountries":"-1","showcurrencies":"-1","nodate":"0","notitle":"0","noproduct":"0","noflags":"0","dateformat":"d M y","nolinktitle":"0","synopsislength":"400","synopsisexpand":"1","shownav":"0","limit":"1"}}]
