ECB's Mersch tells traders: Go back to school

Yves Mersch, a member of the ECB's Executive Board, in an interview with The Wall Street Journal:

... sometimes I think people in the financial markets have to brush-up on their English lessons to understand when we say nothing yet has been decided for March. It is not our communication which is flawed, it is the hype that is being provoked by people with vested interests.

Not a good idea to use a newspaper interview to openly chastise market participants and send them back to school to learn language. An even worse idea is to do so when someone is not a native English speaker himself.
