Europe dives 6%; Eyes on ECB's Lagarde

Europe is awash with red, with the travel and leisure sector leading losses, after President Trump blamed the continent for not taking adequate action to control the spread of the coronavirus and unveiled a 30-day travel.

FTSE 100 -6.1%; CAC 40 -6.4%; DAX -6.4%; Euro Stoxx 50 -6.4%.

The plunge arrives ahead of the latest monetary policy decision from the ECB, which is expected to announce stimulus measures to mitigate the economic impacts of Covid-19 (the BOE cut rates earlier this week).

During the session in Asia, BOJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said the central bank was ready to respond with further steps without hesitation.

Trading in leveraged currency contracts comes with substantial risk. You must be aware of these risks before opening an account to trade. High leverage amplifies gains as well as losses, leading to potential loss of the entire account balance. Trading in leveraged currency contracts may not be suitable for every investor. Never speculate using money that you cannot afford to lose.
