The ECB's policy statement (found here: https://www.ecb.europa.eu/press/pr/date/2021/html/...~48dc3b436b.en.html ) makes no huge changes to the policy approach, but does accommodate for the recent strategy review:
All policy rates unchanged, as expected
- Bank revises forward guidance, newly includes the phrase "ensure that inflation stabilises at its two per cent target over the medium term."
- This replaces old language of "ensure that inflation moves towards its aim in a sustained manner, in line with its commitment to symmetry."
- Retains pace of asset purchases programme at €20bln/month, reiterates that the PEPP envelope can be recalibrated if required and that they are to reinvest maturing PEPP bonds at least through the end-2023.
