Euro was knocked out after ECB's chief Mario Draghi singled out the common currency while testifying in front of the European parliament, expressing that the Euro's strength was weighing negatively on inflation, thus enhancing views of more easing in the ECB's next meeting in December. Euro recovered most of its losses however, with its index down 0.07% to 86.44. It lost 0.15% against Dollar to 1.0727. It traded at its close price against Sterling at 0.7061.
