" This idea was discussed at the last meeting on monetary policy , but so far no news in this regard is not ," said Draghi . During a press conference earlier , he reported that the bank " technically ready " to lower interest rates to negative values ​​, if required by economic conditions .

In addition, the head of the ECB noted that the recovery in the euro area continues but remains " weak, unstable and uncertain ," and until is achieved price stability , the stability of it , too, should not wait. "The risks to the economic outlook continues to be top-down ", - he added. Draghi also said that only the expense of monetary policy can not stabilize the situation in the eurozone and called on EU governments to make some concessions in the reform program .

The British pound rose against the dollar, which has been associated with the publication of data by the Confederation of British Industry , under which it became known that the growth of British industrial orders and production in the last three months has reached its highest level since 1995.

About 44 percent expect an increase in output and 20 percent forecast a decline , resulting in a balance amounted to 24 percent.

Stephen Gifford , director of economics CBI, said: " This new evidence shows encouraging signs of widening and deepening of recovery in the manufacturing sector. " " Manufacturers finally felt the benefit from the growth of confidence and spending in the UK and around the world ," added Gifford .

The Canadian dollar fell significantly against the U.S. dollar, which was in response to the output of positive U.S. data .
