European Central Bank leaves interest rates unchanged; investors await Draghi
Thursday, 7 September 2017 19:20 WIB | FISCAL & MONETARY | ECBMoneter

The European Central Bank on Thursday, as expected, left interest rates unchanged, leaving the focus on ECB President Mario Draghi's news conference.

The ECB Governing Council left the rate on the bank's main refinancing operations at 0%, while the rate on deposits left overnight at the ECB was maintained at minus 0.4% and the rate on the marginal lending facility was left at 0.25%.

The ECB repeated that it expects rates to remain at present levels for an "extended period." The ECB also reiterated its plan to buy 60 billion euros a month worth of bonds through the end of December and that if the outlook deteriorated, it could increase the size of the program.

The key question for traders, however, remains the fate of the bond-buying program beyond the end of the year, with the ECB expected to begin tapering its stimulus program in 2018. Draghi, whose news conference begins at 2:30 p.m. Frankfurt time, or 8:30 a.m. Eastern, is expected to keep plans under wraps due to worries that being explicit about taper plans could spur more unwanted strength in the euro.
