Current trend

During the trading session on Tuesday, the euro fell against the U.S. dollar. The price was declining towards 1.0915 amid tensions over the "Greek" issue. The pair is currently trading near 1.0980.

Yesterday, after the special summit of European leaders, the European Commission has started to develop a possible Greek withdrawal scenario.

At the close of Summit, the Greek leaders have been tasked to present a program of reforms by July 9, which will be further discussed by the Eurogroup. Eurozone financial stability and a way to reach a compromise, that would meet the requirements both of creditors and E.U. standards, are to be considered as well. The final decision on Greece will be made at the Euro Summit, held on July 12 in Brussels.
