TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The euro sank to a new two-month low against the dollar on Thursday as investors waited for the European Central Bank to signal another round of monetary easing, including a possible rate cut and the resumption of bond purchases.

The slide was exacerbated by a bigger-than-expected fall in the German Ifo index of current business conditions to 99.4 in July from 100.8 in June. A Reuters poll of economists had expected a decline to 100.4.

“I doubt that anything the ECB does or says provides much comfort” for the beleaguered euro, said Kit Juckes, macro strategist at Societe Generale.
