European Central Bank left interest rates at a record low on Thursday but said it remained ready to act, acknowledging that emerging market turbulence could hit the euro zone. Risks to the currency bloc's economy remain skewed to the downside, ECB President Mario Draghi said after interest rates were held at 0.25%, and inflation would be low for a protracted period.
