LONDON Jan 12 The euro hit a one month
high of $1.0683 on Thursday after minutes from the European
Central Bank's last meeting revealed a few policymakers had not
backed an extension of its mass bond buying prgramme.
"A few members could not support either of the two options
that had been proposed, while welcoming the scaling down of
purchases," the minutes showed.
The ECB's board had tabled plans to either extend purchases
until December at 60 billion euros per month or until September
at 80 billion euros. The former option was eventually adopted.
