    Draghi to Trump: ECB policy makers 'do not target the exchange rate, period'

    European Central Bank President Mario Draghi on Thursday responded to a tweet by U.S. President Donald Trump that said the central bank had introduced a sweeping new stimulus plan in a successful bid to weaken the euro versus the U.S. dollar. Asked about the tweet in a news conference following the ECB's policy decision, Draghi said: "We do not target the exchange rate, period." The euro fell versus the dollar, hitting a two-year low, after the ECB pushed its key interest rate further into negative territory, announced the relaunch of its bond-buying program and took other steps to stimulate a flagging eurozone economy. In a tweet, Trump said the ECB was "trying, and succeeding, in depreciating the Euro against the VERY strong Dollar, hurting U.S. exports." Trump repeated his criticism of the U.S. monetary policy makers, saying the Fed "sits, and sits, and sits. They get paid to borrow money, while we are paying interest!"

    ECB cuts deposit rate, restarts bond-buying program

    The European Central Bank on Thursday cut its deposit rate further into negative territory, decreasing it by 10 basis points to negative 0.5%, while also announcing it would restart its monthly bond-buying program as it attempts to lift a moribund eurozone economy. Among other measures, the ECB also extended its so-called forward guidance on rates, saying they wold remain at "present or lower levels" until the inflation outlook "robustly" converges with the bank's target inflation rate of near but just below 2%. Previously, the ECB said it intended rates to remain at present or lower levels through the first half of next year. The ECB also made adjustments to its targeted long-term refinancing operations to further encourage lending and, in a bid to ease pressure on bank profitability from a lower deposit rate, announced it would introduce a tiered system that would exempt a chunk of excess reserves parked by banks with the ECB from the negative rate. ECB President Mario Draghi's news conference is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. Eastern.
