Will the ECB Press Conference have a positive influence on the euro?

The ECB will announce the main refinancing rate at 14:45 and give a press conference at 15:30 MT time on December 12.

Since 2016 the European main refinancing rate has been kept at 0%. The legacy of the former ECB President Mario Draghi was to keep the rate unchanged until the inflation rate in Europe comes sufficiently close to but below 2%. The preliminary inflation rate for the month of November in the Euro Area was at 1%, which is far away from the target. Hence, the new ECB head Christine Lagarde is unlikely to make any change to the rate. However, the focus of attention needs to be at the ECB Press Conference following the rate announcement and the monetary policy statement. In her speech, Mrs. Lagarde may share some important insights into the state of the European economy and the quantitative ease policy being implemented through the bond purchase program. If her report brings positive prospects, that will support the euro.

  • If the ECB Press Conference provides a positive economic outlook, it will support EUR;
  • If the ECB Press Conference provides a negative economic outlook, it will create pressure on EUR.

FED and BOE Make Another Attempt to Beat Inflation

The Federal Reserve (Fed) will announce its Interest Rate Decision and make a statement about the future monetary policy on Wednesday, September 21, GMT+3. After the higher-than-expected inflation numbers published on September 13, there’s almost no doubt the Federal Reserve will come up with another 75-basis-point rate hike. However, surprised by the CPI numbers, several Fed members announced the possibility of a 100-basis-point rate hike on Wednesday.
