ECB, Berlusconi Hit EURUSD Hard
Lower by 0.73% in the morning session, the EURUSD is being weighed down by major developments in Europe. Specifically, sparks of political instability in one of the troubled EU members, as well as a pessimistic outlook on Europe’s growth potential is making it difficult for traders to be bullish the Euro. The sentiment has traders and technicians eyeing the 1.2900 as the next viable support barrier. Although leaving the benchmark interest rate at 0.75% early in the morning, the European Central Bank issued a dour note when it came time to assess the economic future of the European Union. In a post decision press conference, ECB President Mario Draghi noted that significant headwinds had placed pressure on a potential regional recovery. So much so that growth prospects for next year were forecasted lower, with the 17-member Union looking to either remain unchanged or contract slightly. Official estimates now lie between a 0.3% pace of growth and a 0.9% contraction in 2013.

Additionally, Draghi noted that “available statistics and survey indicators continue to signal further weakness in activity in the last quarter of the year”.This isn’t seen as favorable for the Euro, which was expecting a slight recovery in the European Union next year – at a pace of 0.5%. – FXstreet.com
