European Central Bank in focus

Nikkei is up today +0,8% to 15,071,88. It`s up because of the news from China which is taking steps to stimulate its economy. All this because they want to reach their goal of the growth at 7,5% in GDP.


The dollar hit a 10-week high to the yen. Rising up after solid U.S economic data. Investors in the Euro zone are waiting for ECB news and the markets are flat so far today. The ECB will announce its interest rate decision today at 11:45 GMT.

Mario Draghi will talk about any further policy decisions at the conference at 12:30 GMT today. It is expected to see ECB keep the rates steady and offer no new aid to the euro zone`s fragile recovery.

As I wrote about yesterday; the inflation in the Euro zone is dangerously low, but despite the lowest inflation in more than four years, they will probably wait for some action now. It seems like the U.S markets will open up today.

Gold is declining as the investors are waiting for the ECB news. Because of the incumbent macro events, the gold prices is continue to fall. New reports from U.S jobs numbers comes tomorrow too. That will be a final sign to see that the economy is on the recovery path.
