ECB Debates Inflation Amid Rising Oil Prices, Hints at Pause in Rate Hikes

The European Central Bank (ECB) held its monthly policy meeting on Thursday, September 8, 2023, to discuss inflation and interest rates in the eurozone. The ECB raised interest rates by 75 basis points, its largest increase on record, to combat rising inflation. However, given the uncertain economic outlook, the ECB also hinted that it may pause its rate hikes in the coming months.

Inflation in the eurozone reached a record high of 8.9% in July 2023, driven by soaring energy prices. The ECB is targeting inflation of 2%, and it has pledged to do whatever it takes to bring inflation back to its target level.

The ECB’s next policy meeting is scheduled for October 27, 2023. At that meeting, the ECB will provide an update on its economic outlook and monetary policy stance.
