Governeing council members discussed 4 QE scenarios at their September 2017 meeting

Reuters with a “sources” story;

  • ECB policy makers discussed 4 QE scenarios at yesterday’s meeting
  • QE options included buys at €40bln and €20bln per month
  • Extension options include 6 or 9 months
  • Agreed next step is to cut stimulus
  • Cut should be done with the boradest possible consensus

The last headline could possibly be a nod to QE opponents like Germany’s Weidmann, who we can probably assume was front and centre of the cutting crew.
