ECB’s Lagarde: We will have further rate increases in the future

  • No definitive number of rate hikes as forward guidance is abandoned
  • Decision on future path and pace of rate hikes are on a meeting-by-meeting basis
  • The destination is clear, and we are not there yet
  • Full interview

Since the policy meeting last week, there is a firm climb down from mentioning that there will be ‘several’ more rate hikes as she did previously.

As much as that sounds resolute, it’s only a matter of time before they start being less aggressive. And from the tone of her communique, we are already starting to see things change.
