Download the Publication Stocks fell and the euro slipped with most currencies against the dollar after Mario Draghi’s dovish message to the European Parliament and as investors assessed the path for higher U.S. borrowing costs.

European Central Bank President Draghi, speaking in Brussels, signaled there’s little urgency to start unwinding the central bank’s 2.3 trillion-euro ($2.6 trillion) bond-purchase program at the next policy meeting on June 8. European shares slumped, while stocks in Japan reversed losses even as the yen strengthened. Yesterday Hong Kong and China markets were shut while the U.K. and U.S. resume trading today after Monday holidays.
