ECB Seen Slowing Pandemic Stimulus as Economic Recovery Advances
3 September 2021
"The European Central Bank will start slowing down its pandemic bond purchases in the fourth quarter and may not exhaust the whole 1.85 trillion-euro ($2.19 trillion) program before it ends next year, according to economists surveyed by Bloomberg. An improved economic outlook will allow policy makers to reduce the pace of buying from 80 billion euros a month in September to about 50 billion euros in March, they said.

Reasons cited include the resurgence in infections, driven by the Delta variant of the coronavirus, and relentless shortages of raw materials, which are depressing automobile sales and restocking."
