Sep 1 - The ECB is likely to focus on its price stability mandate at its meeting on Sept. 14, meaning a higher rate hike could be more likely than markets currently expect, Societe Generale rates strategists said in a note. "Given data dependency and uncertainty, it may be difficult for markets to fully anticipate a rate hike," they said, noting that the outcome of the meeting remains uncertain. "However, the ECB should be pragmatic and focus on its price stability mandate, which remains at risk due to elevated measures of underlying inflation, falling real interest rates and inflation risks skewed to the upside."
