EUR/USD, ECB steady

The European Central Bank left rates unchanged as expected and made no extraordinary announcements as expected. “While the ECB signalled that it could do more if needed, the most likely scenario is that the Bank will not embark on further actions any time soon. Conditions would have to drastically deteriorate to force the ECB to act”, said Clemente de Lucia, Economist at BNP Paribas.
