LONDON, March 29 The euro, the bloc's government
bond yields and banking stocks fell on Wednesday after sources
told Reuters that European Central Bank policymakers are wary of
making any new change to their policy message in April.
Small tweaks at the ECB's meeting earlier this month appear
to have upset investors and raised the spectre of a surge in
borrowing costs for the bloc's indebted periphery.
The euro sank to a week's low against the dollar on the
report, down 0.7 percent to $1.0743. It also hit its
lowest in a month at 119.05 yen.
Europe's government bond yields fell broadly, with
benchmark German 10-year yields at a three-week low of 0.34
percent, down 4 basis points on the day.
Euro zone banking stocks hit a session low, down 0.8
percent, on reduced expectations of higher interest rates which
boost banks' margins.
