September ECB meeting: Setting the ground for tapering announcement in October (Friday, September 8, 2017)

Nevertheless, at the press conference that followed the conclusion of the meeting, ECB President Mario Draghi confirmed that the bulk of the decisions regarding its QE programme will likely be taken at the October 26 meeting.
