ECB leaves rates unchanged, all eyes on QE

ECB holding off on interest rate change

The European Central Bank (ECB) has left interest rates on hold, with President Mario Draghi saying that the bank will reassess whether to extend its massive bond-buying program by the end of the year.

Draghi and ECB members left the door open for more monetary stimulus but stopped short of announcing any new policy measures.

He remarked that the bank's bond-buying program will need to be "re-examined in December" as inflation remains stubbornly low amid emerging market weakness. That sent the euro sharply lower and stocks markets higher.
