LONDON (ICIS)--The European Central Bank (ECB) on Wednesday held interest rates at a record low of 1.0%, unchanged for a sixth straight month.
In December, the ECB cut interest rates to 1% from 1.25%, following a fall of 25 basis points announced in November.
After October 2008, when the level was at 4.25%, the bank cut its key rate several times as it tried to haul the eurozone’s economy out of deep recession.
