Investors were expecting the ECB to implement deeper cuts in lending rates and to increase its bond-buying program to support the economic growth in the European region.

Michael Block, chief equity strategist at Rhino Trading Partners, told Bloomberg, “Draghi disappointed, the long bond is down over three points, trades are getting messed up, it all snowballed and on days when that happens you have a problem. It’s the idea the central banks won’t be there to bail out equities.”


On the other hand, Ryan Larson, head of equity trading at RBC Global Asset Management, commented that there is “no panic” in the stock markets. Investors were just disappointed with the ECB’s decision.

“There were huge expectations for Mr. Draghi and the ECB to provide further stimulus at today’s meeting and in the markets mind they fell short of those expectations,” said Larson.

Yesterday, Federal Reserve Chairperson Janet Yellen stated that the U.S. economic growth is sufficient enough to withstand higher interest rates. The Department of Labor reported that the number of people who applied for unemployment benefits increased by 9,000 to 269,000 for the week ended November 28.
