Euro was knocked out after ECB's chief Mario Draghi singled out the common currency while testifying in front of the European parliament, expressing that the Euro's strength was weighing negatively on inflation, thus enhancing views of more easing in the ECB's next meeting in December. Euro recovered most of its losses however, with its index down 0.07% to 86.44. It lost 0.15% against Dollar to 1.0727. It traded at its close price against Sterling at 0.7061.

European stocks were briefly up after Draghi's comments, before falling deep into red territory, with the pan-European index FTSEurofirst 300 down 1.05% to 1,478. Britain's FTSE fell 68 points, or 1.14% to 6,226. Germany's DAX lost 101 points, or 0.93% to 10,806. France's CAC 40 plunged 75 points, or 1.50% to 4,878.

Dollar was back near its recent highs, with its index up 0.16% to 99.22. It gained 0.22% against Sterling to 1.5180. It rose 0.1% against Yen to 122.97.
