There may not have been glitter this time around, but there was still some excitement to be had at the latest European Central Bank press conference.

As reported earlier by Bloomberg, policymakers lowered economic forecasts and raised the limit on bond purchases under their quantitative-easing program to 33 percent per issue from 25 percent previously.
