Europe closes marginally higher as a leak of ECB bond purchase plans show them at first glance to be something less than a QE-like bazooka. Stoxx 50 +0.1%, Germany +0.5%, France +0.2%, Spain flat, Italy -0.6%. Switzerland (EWL) storms higher by 1.1% on rumors the SNB may try to further weaken the franc. The ECB policy meeting and Draghi press conference is tomorrow.
