The European Central Bank on Thursday
left its key interest rates unchanged at a record low, in line with
economists' expectations, after reducing them in a surprise move last
month, reports "RTTNews".
The Governing Council, led by President Mario Draghi, held the refinancing rate at a record low 0.05 percent, following its policy meeting in Naples, Italy.
The bank today kept the deposit rate at -0.20 percent and the marginal lending rate was maintained at 0.30 percent.
The three main interest rates were lowered by 10 basis points in September as euro area inflation is set to slow in the coming months.
