The OPEC meeting and the US Nonfarm Payrolls rocked the market last week. The market is torn between optimism about the global economic recovery and concerns about the new coronavirus strains.
Will the ECB monetary policy accounts affect the euro?
The ECB monetary policy accounts will be published at 14:30 MT time on November 21.
The monetary policy accounts are published one month after the interest rate announcement. Normally, the information is presented in two parts. The first one contains the latest developments of the Eurozone economy and the possible financial strategies to follow. The second one reflects the discussions that took place in the process of decision making and the reasoning behind the option that was chosen. Hence, we will see in detail why the interest rate was kept steady at 0% on October 24 and what the sentiment of the European monetary future is among the policymakers.
- If the ECB monetary policy accounts reveal a steady rate intention, the euro will rise;
- If the ECB monetary policy accounts reveal openness to further ease, the euro will drop.
