    Draghi squashes inconvenient EUR rally, bears rejoice

    The euro spent the summer in a position of suspicious strength, perplexing investors as even the existential threat posed by the Greek crisis failed to halt its flight. Yesterday's European Central Bank statement, however, saw Mario Draghi clip its wings decisively. "A weaker currency will console officials struggling to prevent consumer prices from falling and trying to boost productivity", says Bloomberg's Eshe Nelson, pointing to the Eurozone's struggle to meet its inflation targets.

    From the Floor: A yen for safety
    Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water... risk-off is back and the yen, again, is its big beneficiary. Today's US nonfarm payrolls print, however, is casting a long shadow over this morning's skittish markets and a significant departure from consensus in either direction could result in what Americans call "a whole new ball game".

    Knee-jerk ECB reaction falls well short of Eurozone fix
    The ECB signalled that it is ready and willing to do more. Meanwhile the central bank has taken a policy backfljp in on factors such as commodity price variations.
