ECB reduced its rate to 0.75%

Published on in Foreign Exchange News by

In a day of giving, with monetary easing in Europe and China as well as further Q/E by the Bank of England, the Euro followed suit and gave back all its gains made since the E.U. summit.

Comments in the post press conference by ECB President Draghi also confirmed continued weakness in the Euro Zone economy. This comes despite the fact the ECB reduced its benchmark rate to 0.75% and deposit rates to zero. We now have growing speculation for additional Q/E measures going forward and a close below the €/$ 1.2400 level could technically lead to further falls to €/$ 1.2100 levels thus influencing further USD strength in general.

Sterling broke back above the € 1.2500 level after the expected additional Q/E of £50 billion, although the LIBOR rate fixing saga will surely hit the news again soon. Overall USD strength has led to the Pound trading towards the $ 1.5500; the next level to watch out for would be a close below $1.5400 next week.

Today we have monthly U.S. non-farm payroll data which, as always, will be closely monitored by market participants.
