The European stock markets are a bit subdued after an initial move higher yesterday on the back of the ECB press conference. The markets have now got a sudden realisation that the extension of QE and the growth forecasts were actually dovish and hence we are seeing the euro on the backfoot and we are also seeing the stock markets being a bit lower.

European stock markets are mostly down, after a largely positive session in Asia.
