Recapitalisation for Spanish banks

Published on in Foreign Exchange News by

The Euro bounced back from its two year lows versus the USD on Friday as it met some profit taking on ‘short positions’ after its two week fall.

Overall the markets have traded in a tight range in the Far East ahead of Fed Chairman Bernanke’s testimony to Congress this week and the Euro Group meeting on Friday which will finalise details of the recapitalisation for Spanish banks. In the meantime the Euro remains vulnerable against a basket of currencies, as German Chancellor Merkel yesterday hardened Germany’s position in an attempt to share burdens in Europe. This was further compounded by some economists suggesting that a weaker Euro will be required in order to stimulate economic growth for the area.

Sterling rallied on Friday against a basket of currencies after the Bank of England and UK Treasury delivered the long awaited details of its new lending program. As a result it bounced from the major support level of $ 1.5400 and is now comfortably trading above $ 1.5500 and € 1.2700. Should we close the week above $ 1.2750, technically a move to € 1.2900+ would be targeted.
