An exciting opportunity to trade the EUR
The European Central bank will have a press conference at 15:30 MT time on December 13.
The press conference is scheduled 8 times a year and comes out about 45 minutes after the announcement of the main refinancing rate. The EUR tends to be highly volatile during this event, as the ECB president Mario Draghi will provide comments on the future monetary policy.

• If the ECB comments are positive, the EUR will rise.
• If the ECB comments are negative, the EUR will fall.
