Morning Report: EUR Gaps As Greek Concerns Escalate

Market Commentary  

The EURUSD gapped down over the weekend and fell below 1.12 at the Asian open, after Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras went on the offensive, seemingly pushing back against the latest offer from the International Monetary Fund, European Union and the European Central Bank announcing a bank holiday, capital controls, referendum on bailout July 5,  Reuters reports cash machines running dry, long gas queues. The euro fell to 1.053 in Asian trade.

GBP lifted in the second straight day on Friday on the back of revitalized prospects for a rise in British interest rates at the end of this year. A lift in wage growth and signs of renewed disagreement on the Bank of England’s policy committee to keeping rates on hold at record lows have provoked investors to price in a chance of a rise as early as December.

USDJPY lifted to 123.85, but was off from the weekly high of 124.37. Figures released on last Friday showed Japan’s household spending in May rose for the first time in more than a year. A robust jobs market drove hopes that companies will begin lifting wages needed to spark inflation towards the Bank of Japan’s 2 percent goal.
