ECB President’s remarks more dovish than expected, signaling further monetary policy easing ahead

At its regular monetary policy meeting on Thursday 22 October, the ECB Governing Council (GC) decided to keep QE operational modalities unchanged, as well as the interest rate on the main refinancing operations and the interest rates on the marginal lending facility and the deposit facility stable at 0.05%, 0.30% and -0.20% respectively, as expected. At a press conference that followed the conclusion of the meeting, President Mario Draghi adopted a more dovish than expected tone, highlighting the downside risks to growth and inflation outlook from the slowdown in emerging market economies and developments in financial and commodity markets.
