LONDON, Feb 6 (Reuters) – The euro fell against the dollar

Relative calm in vulnerable emerging markets such as Turkey

Global Stocks firmer; euro ticks down before ECB

LONDON (Reuters) – World stocks edged up from this week’s four-month lows in cautious trade ahead of a euro zone monetary policy decision later on Thursday, supported by relative calm in vulnerable emerging markets.

The euro was slightly weaker as some investors bet that the European Central Bank could surprise markets with another interest rate cut to ward off the threat of deflation after last month’s unexpectedly soft inflation reading.

It’s not end of the world at the Fragile Five

Despite all the doom and gloom surrounding capital-hungry Fragile Five countries, real money managers have not abandoned the ship at all.
