    The euro dipped towards the dollar subsequent a Bloomberg
report that the ECB workers are studying a probable change to the
bank's inflation purpose of "in the vicinity of two%."
    This sort of a shift would most likely leave the doorway open up for far more
ECB stimulus to continue for a more time interval, which would exert
downward tension on the single forex.
