European shares set to rise ahead of ECB

European stock futures pointed to a positive start on Thursday, as investor focus turns to the European Central Bank’s monetary policy announcement later today. Policymakers are likely to update the guidance on monetary stimulus and to stick with an ultra-easy monetary policy stance, after raising the central bank's inflation target to 2% earlier this month. On the corporate front, consumer products giant Unilever and Swiss pharmaceutical giant Roche will be releasing their quarterly results. Source: Trading Economics
