    [font=Calibri, 'Helvetica Neue', Arial, sans-serif]ECB President Mario Draghi attempted to talk the Euro lower and the market higher today in a lengthy one hour press conference following his decision to not change interest rates. 

    Markets are now closed, so let's put a spotlight on the results (or lack thereof) of Draghi's verbal intervention.

    Just fixed a Typo in my OP there & remembered how I was precluded from substantiating this Thread by way of more Alarmist fresh Threads for each time that the Eurozonecrisis metastasised in both the foreground & background.

    The Homovengeful Ziomatrix within P.ie will do anything to bury the Truth- it's great to have this excellent Site to reveal what is truly going on.  :)
