The former Goldman banker cutting rates two days after his appointment? Stunning. Next up, we get to listen to an Italian accent instead of a French one for the first time in a decade, at the press conference to be held shortly. The EUR reaction is appropriate: completely schizophrenic.
3 November 2011 – Monetary policy decisions
At today’s meeting the Governing Council of the ECB took the following monetary policy decisions:
The interest rate on the main refinancing operations of the Eurosystem will be decreased by 25 basis points to 1.25%, starting from the operation to be settled on 9 November 2011.
The interest rate on the marginal lending facility will be decreased by 25 basis points to 2.00%, with effect from 9 November 2011.
The interest rate on the deposit facility will be decreased by 25 basis points to 0.50%, with effect from 9 November 2011.
The President of the ECB will comment on the considerations underlying these decisions at a press conference starting at 2.30 p.m. CET today.
