The euro is under pressure against the background of yesterday's statement by European Central Bank President Mario Draghi, who once again invited Governments to help the eurozone and the ECB carrying out reforms aimed at growth. Thus, he stressed that the possibility of measures by central banks are close to the limits. Draghi warned of the negative side effects of prolonged interest rates at a low level and said that the measures applied by the European Central Bank "are not sufficient to ensure real, sustainable and long-term growth." He stressed that the stimulus measures taken by the ECB yield results, and the euro zone economy is still coping with the effects of the British decision to withdraw from the EU. He said the ECB will continue to "play its role", providing extra stimulation of economic growth if necessary.
