“Today’s European Central Bank announcement shows the time has come to inject some life back into the ailing Eurozone economy. However, those looking for a quick fix could be disappointed as the desired lift in inflation could take some time to become noteworthy. The lower Euro should already be helping to support those businesses exporting beyond the economic area, but a number of significant challenges to the survival of the Eurozone still remain. All eyes now turn to the results of the Greek elections, due this weekend, which could result in the union being under renewed strain next week.”
