(03-06 20:50)

The European Central Bank held its benchmark interest rate unchanged at a record low of 0.25 percent today, following a meeting in Frankfurt, Germany.
Investors will also pay close attention today to the ECB's latest economic forecasts, in particular its inflation expectations.
The central bank said in a statement it also held its other two key rates -- the marginal lending rate and the deposit rate -- unchanged at 0.75 percent and zero percent respectively. The marginal rate is the rate that banks pay to borrow overnight.--AP/AFP
