ECB’s Centeno says very close to the time monetary policy may pause

European Central Bank Governing Council member and Bank of Portugal governor Mario Centeno

  • “We are reaching the time when monetary policy can pause, we are very close,”
  • “Not overreacting is a huge concern for every central bank.”

Centeno in an interview with Portugal’s broadcaster RTP.

A July ECB rate hike seems baked in, and September is pretty close to being the same. Centeno doesn’t define ‘close’ in his comment though.
