Euro Drops as ECB Buys Covered Bonds

Euro Trades Mixed on the FX Market

Euro is trading mixed today, gaining ground against low beta currencies, but losing ground against its high beta counterparts. There is a lot of concern about the euro right now, and the 18-nation currency is only getting a bit of a boost as risk appetite makes an appearance.

Euro is falling back now, falling a rally that took place yesterday and in earlier trading.

Euro Receives Respite

Euro is heading higher against many of its major counterparts today, gaining ground as a respite from recent difficulties. Once again, the ECB is promising to do what it takes to keep the eurozone afloat, and that is providing at least some support for the 18-nation currency.

Draghi Comments Bring Euro Down

Once again, Mario Draghi is a bit of a downer. His remarks yesterday at the Brookings Institution are dragging on the euro, since they indicate that the ECB is ready to double-down on stimulus measures likely to weigh on the 18-nation currency.

UK Pound Gains Ground Today

After struggling recently, the UK pound is gaining a little ground today. Recently released data is helping the sterling, especially as the economic divergence between the United Kingdom and the eurozone remains pronounced.
