Today’s Currency Movers

EURUSD, Daily

Germany may be considering a staggered deal on Greek aid. Greece will apparently be required to commit to at least one economic reform to win partial access to bailout funds. German Chancellor Merkel was reportedly quoted as saying “where there is a will there is a way. The goal is to keep Greece in the euro area”. The ECB has agreed to increase the Emergency Lending Assistance to Greek banks by 2.3 billion euros. According to Bloomberg the ECB is trying to strike a balance between keeping Greek lenders afloat and safeguarding the country’s central bank, which provides the aid, as the government veers toward a debt default. This is the biggest weekly increase since February 18th.

Standard & Poor’s downgraded Greek bonds deeper into junk status, questioning whether Athens can pay its debts. Reuters reported that Tsipras emerged early on Thursday from talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Francois Hollande to express confidence. “We decided to intensify the efforts to bridge the remaining differences and proceed, I believe, to a solution in the coming period.”

EURUSD traded most of the day yesterday below the 1.1380 resistance identified in my previous report with the result that yesterday’s candle formed a shooting star. There was a brief rally above the 1.1380 level yesterday with the pair creating a high print of 1.1386 but it wasn’t sustainable and rally failed. Most of the morning EURUSD was trading in a small range between intraday support and resistance levels. Market was truggling with an intraday resistance and created a shooting star in 60 min resolution after which it headed towards yesterday’s low at 1.1260 and at the time of writing is trading below it at 1.1244. In daily context the pair is trading close to a daily and weekly resistance which suggests that in the daily resolution the line of least resistance is down. The nearest significant daily support and resistance levels are at 1.1049 and 1.1380.
