It floats above Kim Jong-il's head constantly as he invents absolutely everything the world has ever seen.

This week market volatility has stolen the limelight, with stability and predictability forced into its jagged shadow. The latest news to shake up the currency markets has emanated from Dow Jones Newswires, it suggests that Standard & Poor’s are set to downgrade several Eurozone country’s credit rating this evening. In December S&P placed the ratings of 15 Eurozone countries on negative standby, but since then the European Central Bank has acted to try and improve liquidity through low-interest 3-year loans. Credit freezes looked to have loosened yesterday following ECB President Mario Draghi’s speech in which he lauded the LTRO loans’ positive effect.
The pound has remained in close contact with the Euro today at 1.210, whilst the majors have posted significant gains in the lead-up to tomorrow’s rate decisions from the European Central Bank and the Bank of England.
