The U.S. dollar index initially jumped over 1% higher after the ECB announced a larger stimulus package than most were expecting, but it then dove back lower and ended with a significant loss as the euro rose to see nearly 2% gains after Draghi “said he did not anticipate more interest rate cuts to revive a sluggish euro zone economy.”
Treasuries fell on Draghi’s effort to call a bottom for interest rates.
The Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P traded notably lower at times but ultimately ended near unchanged on uncertainty over central bank policy.
Among the big names making news in the market today were Microsoft, Apple, Valeant, BHP, and Teva.
