Highlights:

  • At today’s meeting the Governing Council decided not to act, in line with expectations.
  • Changes in the tiering multiplier were not discussed and President Lagarde expects the PEPP to be fully implemented.
  • The ECB sees the economy on the right path but emphasises the need for ongoing fiscal action and urged leaders to agree on the Recovery Fund.
  • The ECB maintained its easing bias but unless downside risks materialize further bold ECB actions do not seem imminent.
