Euro Claws Back Ground But This Week Sees The Next ECB Rate Decision So Expect GBP EUR Volatility (Colm Gilhooly)

The Euro has made steady ground today versus the pound after sterling came under pressure from a narrowing of the Scottish referendum polls.  However you only have to look at EUR USD rates and EUR AUD rates to see the single currency is still in trouble.  Indeed sterling is still looking reasonably good against the Euro despite the tumble because we have the next ECB decision on Thursday and there is a growing chance the ECB may have to implement some of the “unusual measures” they have been hinting at recently in an effort to combat stubbornly low inflation.

If this is the case then we could see the Euro drop sharply on Thursday, however do not rule out the chance that Draghi’s soothing words and another “wait and see” stance help calm fears down and the Euro get a temporary reprieve from the recent pressure.  If this is the case, I am sure it won’t be long before it comes under fire again so Euro sellers may want to move quickly.
