A big day for UK and euro zone

It's been a busy Thursday for investors, with the U.K. Finance Minister's Autumn Statement on the state of the country’s economy, and rate decisions by both the Bank of England and the European Central Bank.

  • As both the Bank of England and European Central Bank left their key interest rates unchanged, investors watched Mario Draghi's press conference with interest.

    Earlier, the U.K.'s Finance Minister George Osborne outlined his plans for the British economy to Parliament. He revealed that the independent economic forecaster for the U.K. had more than doubled its growth expectations for the country's economy to 1.4 percent in 2013.
