Technical assumptions about interest rates, exchange rates, oil prices and fiscal policies
The technical assumptions about interest rates and both oil and non-energy commodity prices are based on market expectations. With regard to short-term interest rates as measured by the three-month EURIBOR, market expectations are measured by forward rates as at 8 August, reflecting a snapshot of the yield curve at that point in time. This implies a rising profile, from an average of 3.1% in 2006 to an average of 3.9% in 2007. The market expectations for euro area ten-year nominal government bond yields as at 8 August imply a slightly rising profile, from an average of 3.9% in 2006 to an average of 4.1% in 2007.
