TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The ECB is expected to keep monetary policy unchanged, so attention will turn to Mario Draghi’s press conference.

“There is little doubt that Draghi will hit a dovish tone in the press conference as he highlights economic developments are weaker than expected with global risks still prominent,” said London Capital Group analyst Jasper Lawler. “Should the ECB reduce its inflation forecasts and Draghi focus his speech on weaker growth and increasing risks, investors will quickly push back hopes of a rate rise.”

Meanwhile, sterling was trading down 0.1% against the dollar at 1.3057, having hit its best level since early November on Wednesday.
