The dollar managed to climb against the Swiss franc, pairing its losses against the euro on the rising hopes that Barack Obama and a group of senators named the ‘Gang of Six’ is closer to bringing the two warring parties together to hash out a deal in raising the US debt ceiling through cuts of almost $4 trillion over the next decade – a solution that will see a reduction in ‘Obamacare’ spending and increased tax revenue to the tune of $1 trillion.

Important few days ahead. Stock markets rallied over the last 24 hours as Obama indicates that an agreement with the Republicans over the debt ceiling/restructuring  is nearing.

Euro officials meet tomorrow, and already the French finance minister today stated that` the member states have already agreed on objectives, method and schedule on Greece’s rescue’, the Euro has rallied a little since this statement.

Sterling a little weaker prior to the BoE MPC minutes which confirmed the 7-2 vote in favour of leaving UK rates unchanged (as expected).
