Most ECB officials agreed that there was a need to signal the necessity of recalibrating the ECB's monetary policy instruments when they meet in December, but cautioned that the central should not pre-commit itself to specific policy actions, the accounts of the October's meeting showed. At the same time, policymakers viewed the existing stimulus measures as effective, but questioned about possible side effects and “diminishing returns” in an environment of high uncertainty and very favorable financial conditions.
