Economic news: Euro was higher after ECB meeting. ECB’S rejection of inflation and tapering of asset purchases is bearish for EUR/USD. However, US GDP’S disappointment overshadowed ECB’S dovish tone.
US GDP expanded at an annual rate of 2.0% in the third quarter of 2021, according to the first estimate released by the US Bureau of Economic Analysis. This marked a sharp deceleration from the 6.7% growth recorded in the second quarter and also missed consensus estimates for a reading of 2.7%.
ECB kept monetary policy unchanged as widely expected. The interest rates on the marginal lending facility and the deposit facility will remain unchanged at 0.00%, 0.25% and -0.50% respectively. The forward guidance is maintained.
That is, “the Governing Council expects the key ECB interest rates to remain at their present or lower levels until it sees inflation reaching two per cent well ahead of the end of its projection horizon and durably for the rest of the projection horizon, and it judges that realised progress in underlying inflation is sufficiently advanced to be consistent with inflation stabilising at two per cent over the medium term. This may also imply a transitory period in which inflation is moderately above target.”
PEPP purchases will continue with a total envelop of EUR 1850B, until at least end of March 2022. The pace of net asset purchases will remain “moderately lower” than in Q2 and Q3. APP purchases will continue at a monthly pace of EUR 20B too.
