ECB Leaves Interest Rates Unchanged, Boosts Liquidity - Is It Enough?

ECB Leaves Interest Rates Unchanged, Boosts Liquidity - Is It Enough?

Nick Cawley, Strategist

ECB Meeting and EUR/USD Price, News and Analysis:

  • ECB surprises and leaves all interest rates unchanged.
  • Coronavirus pandemic forces central banks to act.

ECB Monetary Policy Decision: Interest Rates Unchanged, Liquidity Boosted

The European Central Bank left all of its interest rates unchanged Thursday. Markets had priced-in an additional 10bps cut to the deposit rate. The central bank also announced new liquidity measures, adding a ‘temporary QE envelope’ of EUR120 billion extra of bond buying until the end of 2020. The ECB also announced a new LTRO to provide additional liquidity until the next round of TLTROs are announced in June this year. It waits to be seen if the ECB has done enough to help stabilize an economy roiled by the coronavirus.

ECB Monetary Policy Decision

Before the ECB decision, news outlets were reporting that Germany is ready to ditch their long-standing balanced budget stance to combat the coronavirus, suggesting new fiscal measures from the Eurozone’s largest member state.

EUR/USD price action suggests that ECB President Lagarde will be in for a tough time at the upcoming press conference with the pair jumping on the announcement, only to fall back to make a fresh low for the day.
