With the markets winding down for the festive season currency rates have for the moment calmed down. Much of the overnight focus has put the spotlight firmly on the European Central Bank President, Jean-Claude Trichet who is set to retire next October after the Euro area maintained record low interest rates. Being Christmas eve, the markets have remained fairly static, therefore, all of us here at Currency Solutions would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our readers and to wish you all a Merry Christmas. Also, just a further reminder, we will be open again from Wednesday the 29th December and here’s hoping that I write better news in 2011. Happy Holidays!
