ECB opts for surprise rate cut

Key rate now at 1.25 per cent


 

The European Central Bank cut its key interest rate to 1.25 per cent from 1.5 per cent on Thursday morning, earlier than analysts expected. The move comes as new ECB President Mario Draghi reacts to signs that the euro zone is sliding into recession.
