The European Central Bank cut its interest rates on Thursday in an effort to stop the euro from deteriorating any further, while China cut its bank lending rates and the Bank of England pumped billions of pounds into a stimulus program. The European Central Bank’s benchmark interest rate has dropped from 1 percent to 0.75 percent—its lowest level ever.

As for China, analysts said the move likely reflects uncertainty about the second-quarter growth.
