    Key Quotes

    "The minutes from the ECB’s early-September policy meeting could spark more interest than has been the case lately.

    "Our economists expect the ECB to expand its QE programme in December, with the disappointing US data and persistent strength in the EUR’s trade-weighted exchange rate suggesting that the risk of a move as early as October cannot be ruled out. ECB Executive Board member Praet speaks at 11:10 GMT and he has been among the policymakers signaling openness to provide more accommodation if needed."
