ECB’s de Guindos keeps door open to more QE ‘if needed’

April 25, 2019

NEW YORK (Reuters) – The European Central Bank is prepared to resume its quantitative easing (QE) program if needed to reach its inflation target but so far it has not discussed such a prospect, its vice-president Luis de Guindos said on Thursday.

“We closed our QE program at the end of last year but… it’s something that we can use again if needed,” de Guindos told an event in New York.
