With the economy improving and home prices climbing, central bankers seem to have achieved at least part of their goal. However, investors have reaped much of the benefits of rising prices, while meaningful wage growth -- and with it the ability of many Americans to buy homes -- has yet to materialize. That's been one reason housing has posted such inconsistent progress over the past two years, even with mortgage rates near historical lows.

The restriction will place a further squeeze on the cash-strapped Greek government, which could run out of money to pay wages and pensions by the end of next month.

Speaking to the European Parliament on Monday, Mario Draghi denied the ECB was acting unfairly towards the Leftist government: "We haven't created any rule for Greece, rules were in place and they've been applied," said Mr Draghi.
