The cross is thus trimming initial losses, as the current EUR strength is offsetting the bullish momentum in the sterling. President Draghi emphasized the current forward guidance, stressing that low rates would remain for an extended period of time. He also expects the export sector to be benefited from economic recovery overseas, although the risks continue to be tilted to the downside when comes to the euro area economic growth, impacting in consumer prices. Once again, the council discussed a rate cut. Adding to the upbeat tone around the single currency, Italian PM Enrico Letta just won the confidence vote in the Parliament.
