EUR: The euro crosses have opened another week in Asia with a bullish gap. This time Greek election results with a pro-euro outcome gave a boost to European assets. For the time being there is no need for coordinated action from central banks on a global scale. The EUR-USD is moving above the 1.2650 resistance level at 1.2700 and the EUR-JPY has again breached the 100 psychological area.
GBP: Sterling crosses are moving in synch with the euro. Cable has broken the recent range and is moving close to 1.57. We can see bullish gaps in this pair as well as in the GBP-JPY and the EUR-GBP, with the latter moving close to but below 0.8100.
CHF: After the relief in Greece the Swiss franc is giving up some of its recent gains due to demand for safe-haven assets. The EUR-CHF is moving closer to the 1.20 threshold. The USD-CHF is moving close to 0.9450.
Nordics: The SEK and the NOK are losing ground against the EUR and advancing versus the USD. Safe-haven demand linked to peripheral woes has pushed them up recently.
USD: After the Greek elections and the Eurogroup meeting the US economy is going to be closely monitored due to the upcoming FOMC. Poor industrial production numbers on Friday show a worsening bias in the US economic indicators. The USD-JPY has opened the week with a half figure gap and is moving above 79.00.
CAD, AUD & NZD: The three other dollar crosses are showing strength against the greenback and the yen, thanks to reduced risk aversion after Greek elections results. The AUD-USD moves well above the parity zone and the USD-CAD is still stuck at the 1.02 support area.
