TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

“We see a risk of modest dovish bias from Draghi today given the long stream of the soft euro zone data and look for the euro to test $1.1310,” said ING FX strategist Petr Krpata.

At 0830 the euro was down 0.2 percent at $1.1355.

Germany, France and Italy, the euro zone’s biggest economies, barely grew in the fourth quarter and French business activity fell unexpectedly this month, a survey showed on Thursday.
