With its controversial bond purchases, the ECB has breached the Trillion mark. Since beginning the program in March 2015, bonds to the value of 1,001,947,000,000.00 Euro have been bought. The purpose of the ECB´s actions, is to counteract deflationary pressures in Europe. Also aiming at stimulating the European economies in addition. The aim is to force banks to give out more loans, instead of investing in bonds, by keeping interest rates at artificially low levels. German bonds are already showing signs of supply problems.. The ECB is only permitted to purchase bonds with a coupon above 0.4%, leaving only bond maturing later than 8 years from now filling this criteria. To counteract this dilemma, the ECB cold lower the deposit rate further, leaving bank´s business models under even more pressure.

This leaves investing in equities without an alternative.
