Euro holds its ground after ECB minutes

EURUSD held its ground Thursday after the minutes of the late January meeting of the European Central Bank’s policymaking Governing Council showed that some members of the council want to drop the ECB’s current bias towards easier policy.

The minutes also showed that the council decided any changes in the central bank’s communication would be premature and that policy would evolve to avoid abrupt, disorderly adjustments later. The ECB’s communication stance could be revisited early this year, though, and concerns were expressed about the Euro’s perceived volatility.

The ECB also said it was increasingly confident about inflation, although patience was required, and that the pace of economic growth in the Euro-Zone could strengthen.
