EURUSD Jumps on ECB Statement
The ECB has followed the Fed and the BoE with its own 50bps hike. It also announced quantitative tightening from March 2023. Tone was hawkish, with the statement saying, “interest rates will still have to rise significantly at a steady pace to reach levels that are sufficiently restrictive to ensure a timely return of inflation to the 2% medium-term target.”
