The ECB cuts rates 50 basis points to 2 percent

The European Central Bank cut its benchmark rate 50 basis points (0.50%) to 2% because of weakness in the Eurozone. While a cut was widely anticipated, it was not known whether the ECB would cut 25 or 50 basis points. However, the cut of 50 basis points ended up confirming the prevailing view that the ECB is behind the curve. As a result, the Euro weakened against the Japanese Yen and the U.S. Dollar.
