Europe's top central banks are expected to cut borrowing costs on Thursday as market focus shifts back to the economic crisis from the excitement of Barack Obama's historic election victory.
Both the European Central Bank and the Bank of England are expected to cut interest rates. Many economists are forecasting the ECB to cut rates by at least half a percentage point, while others are anticipating a cut by as much as 75 basis points.
For the ECB, it is facing the first euro zone-wide recession since its inception in 1999, and a rate cut by 75 basis points would be its largest ever.
