The European Central Bank (ECB) announced that its February 2023 interest rate decision was to increase by 50 basis points.
The announcement of the US interest rate decision was a move that relieved the global economy.

In markets where there are recession concerns, interest rate increases are expected to slow down and inflation rates are expected to decline. In this context, the ECB made a statement regarding a 50 basis point increase in its February 2023 interest rate decision.
