With the forex community well aware of recent rate cuts by the ECB, the concern with this announcement was that extreme measures could have been on the cards, including aggressive easing.

However, most traders predicted the ECB to hold interest rates and they were correct. (The Telegraph, 5th December 2013)

Vantage FX Head of Market Analysis commented:

“The ECB announced last week that interest rates would stay on hold at 0.25% as expected. During the press conference, after the announcements, the head of the ECB, Mario Draghi, implied that there would be no further rate cuts in the near future. However, many were hoping the head of the ECB would be discussing and elaborating further about the introduction of an LTRO (Long term refinancing operation) which would be designed to improve the liquidity in the Eurozone.”
