The euro fell against the dollar, registering with the first monthly decline since July, which was associated with the Italian political disputes about the formation of the government, as well as against decrease in the inflation rate in the euro area, which "opens the door" to stimulate the part of the central bank.

The euro also weakened against most other major currencies, after last night European Central Bank President Mario Draghi signaled that the ECB is not going to hold tighter monetary policy in the near future.

Note that the strengthening of the dollar did not prevent even the GDP data.

Economists had expected a more substantial revision to the consensus forecast of growth of 0.5 percent.

The pound was little changed in the course of trading, as the presented data showed that consumer confidence index from Gfk was -26 in February, unchanged from the previous month. Also note that this value is fully in line with economists' forecasts.

Note that the seasonally adjusted deficit of the balance of payments has decreased in the last quarter to the level of 17.26 billion Canadian dollars, while the data for the previous quarter, revised up to 1.04 billion Canadian dollars. Meanwhile, the Bureau of Statistics reported that the decline was the highest since Q3 2011. Also, the data showed that for the full year deficit of 66.94 billion Canadian dollars, the highest level since 2010.
