    FXStreet (Mumbai) - As Reuters reports, Euro zone money markets see the chances of the European Central Bank (ECB) slashing its deposit rate in its March meeting at ‘coin flip’ levels.

    Forward EONIA (Euro OverNight Index Average) rates dated for the ECB's meeting on March 10 ECBWATCH are trading at -0.30%, around 5 basis points below the overnight rate of -0.25 percent. Analysts said this indicated around half of a further 10 basis point cut is priced.
