European Central Bank officials are approaching a major decision on new stimulus amid conflicting economic data and differences over what to do about it.

Economists at the ECB are preparing forecasts for President Mario Draghi to unveil next week that will show whether they still believe an upturn will materialize in the second half of the year. The Governing Council must then decide if it should yet again deploy any of its many tools -- including a new round of bank loans -- to boost growth and inflation.
