TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The euro was headed for a second weekly decline on Friday after the head of the European Central Bank said economic growth was likely to be weaker than previously expected.

ECB President Mario Draghi blamed factors ranging from China’s slowdown to Brexit for the slowdown. The central bank left the bloc’s interest rates unchanged on Thursday.

The euro, which has traded in a range of $1.12 to $1.16 for the past three months, weakened as investors questioned whether the ECB would be able to raise interest rates this year, as its current guidance indicates.
