EURO Remains Strong on Expectations of Positive News from Greece

Updated October 15, 2012

On Monday, EURUSD closed at 1.2949, 0.03% lower than Friday. Euro continues the uptrend from its support level of around 1.2100 in late July. Greek 10-year yields touched a new low since its last debt restructuring in March this year, falling 47 basis points to 17.58%. The good news is that Greece may not fall through the cracks after all. The latest reassurance comes from the German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble, who categorically said, “I think, it will not happen that there will be a state bankrupt in Greece.”
