ECB Policy Meeting

In the global financial markets, investors are keeping tabs on the European Central Bank (ECB) policy meet this week. Many expect the central bank is unlikely to signal significant policy tweaks.

With inflation in the eurozone slowly rebounding, the ECB is preparing to dial back its ultra-low rates and massive bond purchases. But make no mistake - it will be a challenge for the bank's years of easy money policies.

The ECB has been pouring money into the eurozone to boost inflation from a near-deflationary level.

Most of the economic problems we see today have been fueled by the easy money policies that central banks have adopted around the world. However, with the changes of late at central banks, it seems that the end of easy money is near.

BoJ Policy Meeting

Along with ECB, investors are also tracking the conclusion of Bank of Japan's (BoJ) policy meeting.

As per the expectations, the central bank is set to raise its economic growth forecasts but cut its rosy inflation outlook.

On Wednesday, Japan's government left unchanged its overall view that the economy is recovering gradually due to pick up in consumer spending and exports.

While the above developments look good, there remain many issues that can hamper Japan's economic growth. The economy is flooded with excessive money printing, too much debt, too much government intervention, and stock market manipulation.
