ECB Meeting

ECB Meeting

The policy of the European Central Bank is a major driver for the euro. Ahead of its every meeting, traders await decisions and comments from the ECB and make their predictions. As a result, the EUR is volatile ahead of the event and afterward.

The regulator will publish its monetary policy decision at 14:45 MT time. The ECB President Mario Draghi will hold a press conference at 15:30 MT time.

In June, the ECB announced that it would end monetary stimulus program by the end of the year (good news for the EUR) but signaled that any interest rate hike was still distant (bad news for the EUR). Traders will be eager to know whether the central bank’s approached has changed or not.

• If the ECB is optimistic about the economy and hints at higher interest rates, the EUR will rise.

• If the ECB is pessimistic about the economy and hints at low interest rates, the EUR will go down.
