Bosomworth Says ECB Will Not Specify Tapering End Date

Updated on

Mario Draghi is preparing for the final act in his dramatic tenure as European Central Bank president.

The ECB’s meeting on Thursday to discuss how and when it should bring large-scale bond purchases to an end is one of the most keenly anticipated by investors and economists since early 2015 when the program was unveiled. The decision will be announced at 1:45 p.m. in Frankfurt and Draghi will speak 45 minutes later.
