 Euro against major falls after European Central Bank rate cut

The European Central Bank announced a package of stimulus measures on Thursday, as expected, to boost the eurozone economy at a final pricing session chaired by outgoing President Mario Draghi.

The central bank cut its deposit rate by 10 basis points to -0.50 per cent, while the main refinancing rate and marginal lending rate remained unchanged at 0.00 per cent and 0.25 per cent respectively.

The Board also dramatically changed the wording of its forward guidance. “The Board now expects that the ECB's key interest rates will remain at current or lower levels until it sees inflation expectations converging strongly to a level close enough, but below, 2% above its forecast, This convergence has been consistently reflected in core inflation dynamics. ”

The European Central Bank has restarted its asset purchase program, which had previously ended in December 2018. The bank said it would make monthly purchases of assets worth 20 billion euros as of November 1. The new measures will continue to be implemented as long as necessary to strengthen the softening effect of their policy rates, and to be completed shortly before the ECB's key interest rate hike begins. ”

The Bank will continue to reinvest the proceeds of the securities payable under the application for an extended period of time from which the Board begins raising the ECB's key interest rates, in any case as long as necessary to maintain favorable liquidity conditions and an adequate degree of cash settlement.

Trump: The ECB successfully devalued the euro against the dollar

They are trying, and succeeding, to devalue the euro against the very strong dollar, hurting US exports .... The Federal Reserve is sitting, sitting and sitting. Get paid to borrow money while we pay interest! "
