Central banks worked hard during the Labour Day week. Both the US Federal Reserve and the European Central bank held their monthly meetings and both managed to surprise.

Despite the policymakers’ debates on whether or not to begin winding down the bond-buying programme, Ben Bernanke said he stands ready to increase the monthly asset purchase to stimulate the US economy.
