ECB for ending bond purchases | The Express Tribune


The European Central Bank should end its stimulus programme in July and could raise interest rates in the same month, in September or later, ECB Vice President Luis de Guindos said in an interview published on Thursday.

The ECB said last week that it would stop buying bonds in the third quarter of the year and raise interest rates sometime after that, ending years of monetary largesse in the face of surprisingly high inflation.

De Guindos was joining a growing number of ECB policymakers, including Bundesbank President Joachim Nagel, in calling for an early end to the asset purchase programme.
