ESM funding cannot exceed € 190 billion

Published on in Foreign Exchange News by

As expected the German Constitutional Court has approved the permanent Euro Zone rescue fund, the European Stability Mechanism (ESM). One of the conditions attached is that ESM funding cannot exceed € 190 billion, if so, it would have to be put forward to the lower parliament for approval. Considering the size of recent gains made by the Euro, the short term risk could be for a correction lower, but news that Rajoy may ask for ECB bond buying assistance has lent some support to Euro this morning.

So, the recovery for the Euro continues having gained almost 6% in the last six weeks versus the USD with recent stock market gains also adding support. The USD in general is weaker again ahead of the Federal Reserve policy decision tomorrow, however above €/$ 1.2930, there is reported selling interest (possibly profit taking from the speculative community). Sterling is also holding onto its gains against the USD, however is weaker against a basket of other currencies including the Euro, next major technical level to watch is € 1.2400.

Also worth noting are the Dutch elections being held today with early results due this evening.
