Greece stays in eurozone. The agreement was reached on Monday after difficult talks between Greece and the eurozone leaders. Greece is going to receive a new bailout program on conditions that the government of Alexis Tsipras implements tough economic reforms. If Greece’s government accepts the proposal, on Wednesday the Eurogroup meets again to finalise the plan.
During the Asian session, the USD fell against AUD and NZD but began strengthening since the European session started. The NZD/USD pair is now trading near its opening level of 0.6700 and the downward tendency is growing.
The Fed Chair Janet Yellen did not give new hints regarding the anticipated interest rates hike in her last speech.
