ECB’s Vasilauskas Wants ‘Concrete Date’ for End of QE

European Central Bank Governing Council member Vitas Vasilauskas member wants a “concrete date” for the end of quantitative easing. He is quoted by MNI as saying that “all options are on the table”, adding that he would favor of a decision on October and prefers to have “a concrete date or complete term as to how long we can be ” in the bond buying program.

Vasilauskas added that there is agreement that the parameters of quantitative easing are not under discussion and that “capital key is a key element”. At the same time, he seemed to play down the strength of the EUR, saying that he is “not so very worried about the current exchange rate”, which in his view is a sign of the improving economic situation in the Eurozone.
