The ECB left interest rates unchanged and renewed its pledge to continue asset purchases through the end of September.

    Confident Draghi lifts euro to day's highs; yields dip

    The euro held at the day's highs on Thursday after ECB President Mario Draghi presented a relatively confident outlook for the euro zone economy, contrary to some expectations that he would take a more cautious stance after recent weak data. After briefly falling to its lowest since mid-January at $1.2145 after the ECB's decision to keep policy unchanged, the single currency rebounded and was trading up 0.3 percent at the day's highs of $1.2210 after Draghi played down concern over recent softness in data. "If anything, he is a tad more hawkish than forecasts and he does not strike as being particularly concerned with the level of the euro either," said Neil Jones, head of hedge fund sales at Mizuho Bank Ltd in London.
