After cutting back the key interest rates across the euro zone today ECB has now announced an asset backed securities program to recover the growth and inflation in the area. In the press conference Draghi said that the ECB will start to purchase a broad portfolio of euro dominated covered bonds. The risk in the euro area seems to be skewed to the downside. ECB has also cut its Inflation forecast for this year to .6% down from the previous forecast of .7%.
