EUR, GBP Plunge to Multi-year Lows

Global recessionary fears dominated the market headlines in the Wednesday session, with US equity bourses posting steep losses, crude oil slumping beneath the $70 per barrel level to $67.12 and spot gold at a one-year low to $774.57 per ounce. The greenback and yen benefited from continued safe-haven flows, posting steep gains versus the euro and sterling.

The dollar surged to 1.2737 against the euro for the first time since November 2006. Although the FOMC will likely cut rates by 50-basis points to 1.0% when it meets next week, markets anticipate more aggressive policy easing from the ECB in the near-term to support the struggling economy.
