whatever is needed to preserve the Euro

Published on in Foreign Exchange News by

A boost of confidence from the ECB saw global markets rally yesterday.

ECB President Draghi pledged ‘to do whatever is needed to preserve the Euro’ and suggested they (the ECB) may intervene in bond markets as surging yields in Spain and Italy threaten the existence of the bloc. This came as some surprise to market participants and as a result global stocks rallied aggressively, the Euro gained momentum climbing more against the USD than in almost a month, and both Spanish and Italian bond yields fell giving short term relief for both countries fiscal concerns.

The USD in general has weakened across a broad range of currencies having seen medium term gains this year. Sterling also climbed against the USD but remains unchanged versus the Euro. Despite all this, the long term trend of a weaker Euro remains in place until any potential action is seen by the ECB.
