ECB meet this week – preview (& where for the euro)

Preview of the European Central Bank meeting this week via CBA:

  • We expect EUR/USD to edge higher this week. 
  • The ECB is widely expected to keep interest rates on hold Thursday. However, we anticipate the ECB will signal a gradual shift towards a less accommodative monetary policy stance which is EUR supportive. 
  • Specifically, the ECB will likely confirm the termination of its €30bn/month asset purchases for end-September and provide a guide on how long they will reinvest maturing assets. Improving Eurozone inflation dynamics also suggests the ECB will raise its headline CPI inflation projections (currently 1.4% for 2018 and 2019 and 1.7% for 2020).
