ECB meeting this week - preview

Author: Eamonn Sheridan | Category: Central Banks

The European Central Bank meet this week - this via Barclays is a very brief what to expect:

  • At the October ECB meeting, we expect President Draghi to announce a nine-month extension of the APP at a lower pace of EUR30bn per month
  • We do not expect the ECB to commit to tapering towards zero at the end of the extended programme,
  • we think QE will continue at least until the end of 2018
  • We expect no change in the forward guidance in the near term
  • We think the first depo rate hike will occur in 18 Q4
