FXMR:EUR/USD has higher R/R to the downside

FX Market Report believe today’s Eurogroup decision for a €130bn Greek bailout won’t be a full agreement, but a partial deal with “difficult and contentious issues unresolved until a later date”.

“Here at FXMR we remain convinced that Greece is irreparably broke and has no sustainable debt dynamic other that a default and a new beginning”, writes Gavin Grier-Rees, stating that Germany, Netherlands and Finland already voice the same opinion. “That’s why we predict ever harsher conditions will be imposed on the Greeks until they eventually are forced from the single currency. What we are seeing here is both sides trying to avoid being given the blame for ending the dream of a single currency”, he adds.

FXMR analysts believe the strong week start, high at 1.3240, was a relief move as Greece didn’t default this weekend.

“Risk‐reward must be to the downside”, with supports at 1.3110-15 and 1.3145-50. As news disappoints, last week’s lows at 1.2975 is next target.
