Forex Chart of the Day Market Frustration

The Brussels Summit ended yesterday with no favourable resolution for the Greek saga leaving the market showing its frustration on the EUR/USD driving it down to 1.3075.  Apparently German Chancellor Angela Merkel shared the same frustration with the Greek government’s failure to carry out its economic reform.  Euro found its base at 1.3135 during early Asian session and the theme today for Asia was sell dollar.  However moving towards the London session we may see EUR/USD take on a different theme in the form of volatility.  With a whole battery of macro data expected today from the Euro zone, it may be touch and go.  We have German retail sales (MoM); French Consumer Spending (MoM); German Unemployment Change; Italian Unemployment Rate; Eurozone Unemployment Rate.  In New York expect Chicago PMI and more importantly US Conference Board Consumer Confidence.  Euro support is seen at 1.3120 but the psychological level of 1.3000 is possible if all the ‘bad’ stars align.  Top side try for 1.3230.
