ECB President speaks
When the President speaks, markets focus heavily on the language used in the President's speech. If the President is cautious about the inflationary outlook for the economy ("Hawkish"), then the market sees a higher likelihood of future rate increases. Optimism in the President's outlook ("Dovish") would suggest to markets that inflation is in check and that future rate increases are less likely, with the possibility of declines in rates.
