Gold has committed a surge in prices, repeating the motion of the major currency pairs, after today's meeting at the ECB decided to leave interest rates at a record minimum of 0.75%, and the comments of the ECB.
At the outset, the head of the Central Bank said that the euro is surrounded by a high level of uncertainty, advising governments to prepare for activation EFSF / ESM in the bond market.
He also stressed that the Board of Governors may consider taking further non-standard measures and implementation of open market operations under the mandate.
However, Draghi did not mention the resumption of purchases of bonds, although the market had pinned hopes on it after the speech the head of the Central Bank last week when it announced its readiness to defend the euro by any means.
In addition, Draghi mentioned the issue of reducing rates, but the action is considered inappropriate in the current period.
