ECB hikes bound to be more gradual than in US

Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi said on Thursday that the European Central Bank’s (ECB) decision to hike the interest rate is inevitable, as reported by Reuters.

“ECB interest rise is bound to be more gradual than in the US,” Draghi added and said that it was totally counterproductive for politicians to comment on the ECB’s policy.
