The European Central Bank (ECB) left its three main interest rates unchanged – see figure 1. The deposit facility, main refinancing operations and marginal lending facility interest rates were maintained at -0.40%, 0.00% and 0.25% respectively.


While the ECB is continuing its quantitative easing (QE) programme, it expects to halve its bond purchases between Oct and Dec 2018 before ceasing them altogether. The tapering of QE suggests steady economic recovery and mild inflationary pressure in the Eurozone.
