Europska središnja banka (ECB) snizila je u četvrtak (11. rujna) kamatne stope na nove rekordne najniže, neočekivano snižavajući troškove zaduživanja kako bi pokušala podići inflaciju s najniže razine i podržati stagnirajuću ekonomiju eurozone.

The ECB cut its main refinancing rate to 0.05 percent from 0.15 percent. ECB President Mario Draghi had said after the ECB’s last rate cut in June that “for all the practical purposes, we have reached the lower bound”.

In a landmark speech on 22 August, however, Draghi said indications from financial markets showed inflation expectations “exhibited significant declines at all horizons” in August.

Euro zone inflation slowed to 0.3% last month, sinking deeper below the ECB’s target of just under 2% and raising the spectre of deflation in the eurozone.

On Thursday, the ECB also said it had lowered the rate on bank overnight deposits to -0.20%, which means banks pay to park funds at the central bank, and cut its marginal lending facility – or emergency borrowing rate – to 0.30%.

Markets now turn their attention to ECB President Mario Draghi’s 1230 GMT (0930 EDT) news conference, at which he is expected to give a more detailed explanation of the ECB’s decision.
