TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The euro on Friday was headed for its worst month since October, weighed down by fears about economic growth and cautious signals from the European Central Bank.

Policymakers cut growth forecasts for the euro zone economy earlier this month and launched a new round of cheap loans to its banks.

Weaker-than-expected economic surveys from Germany and dovish signals from the ECB have pushed hedge funds to reduce their long euro positions.

The single currency has also been weighed down by speculation the ECB will introduce a tiered deposit rate, providing a sign that policymakers plan to keep interest rates low for longer.
