TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The ECB is expected to stay on the sidelines and maintain interest rates at 0.00%, where they have been pegged since March 2016. Still, the markets are expecting some dovish moves by the ECB at the policy meeting. The ECB is forecast to revise downwards its growth forecasts, and could announce fresh liquidity, so as to provide corporate borrowers with cheap credit. The eurozone economy showed some strength in the first half of 2018, which led to talk of a rate hike in the second half of 2019. However, with Germany and the eurozone in the midst of a slowdown triggered by global trade tensions, it’s unlikely that the ECB will make a rate move before 2020.
