The European Central Bank (ECB) has launched a new round of monetary stimulus to give the economy a boost in the face of global uncertainties like the US-China trade conflict and Brexit. 

The central bank, which acts for the 19 countries that use the euro, sparked the anger of US President Donald Trump when it revealed plans to cut the rate on deposits it takes from banks to minus 0.5 per cent from minus 0.4 per cent.

That is a penalty rate that pushes banks to lend excess cash, but was a smaller cut than the market was hoping for.

Trump took the move as a cue to lash out at the US Federal Reserve on Twitter.
