FRANKFURT (Reuters) – The European Central Bank may be preparing to cut interest rates even after holding them at record highs on Thursday, Austrian central bank governor Robert Holzmann told a conference on Friday.

“One of the decision yesterday was no change but a change may be in preparation,” said Holzmann, an outspoken conservative who has long warned about premature easing.
