EUR/USD revealed muted reaction on the ECB rate announcement ahead of the Central Bank’s policy statement. However, the first half an hour of the Mario Draghi speech put the European single currency 72 pips higher against the US dollar, while the further course of press conference managed to keep the Euro above the 1.2000 level.

The ECB President Mario Draghi noted that volatility in the Euro exchange rate was a source of unclarity, causing the necessity to monitor the FX rate impact on price stability being very important for inflation targets and growth. Mr. Draghi stated that underlying inflation trends had improved, but continued to be relatively subdued, while confidence surrounding the future economic growth remained strong.
