The European Central Bank expects to further reduce negative interest rates with new quantitative government bond purchases. The ECB commits to further cutting negative interest rates to -0.5%. Also, the ECB refreshes radical monetary stimulus in the form of quantitative-easing (QE) government bond purchases. In particular, the ECB plans to buy €20 billion government bonds each month from November 2019 onwards. As the ECB president Mario Draghi expects to step down in late-October 2019, this key monetary stimulus helps fulfill his landmark legacy about a decade after the global financial crisis of 2008-2009.

Moreover, this strategic move serves as a defensive response to the recent dovish interest rate reductions in the U.S. and other countries such as India, New Zealand, and Thailand. In terms of global monetary policy coordination, these interest rate cuts anchor low and stable inflation expectations and exchange rates worldwide. The ECB can successfully assuage the concern and suspicion that most French and German central bank hawks share in recent times. Yet, the persistent negative interest rates and ad hoc QE government bond purchases draw direct criticisms from UBS and Deutsche Bank. The current monetary stimulus may or may not be sustainable in the long run.
