Will Greece reach an agreement today? Drum roll please. I think the answer is yes, they will, although instead of speculating I will update you tomorrow once the dust settles. We will then have some kind of clarity of the political/financial landscape for the next few months in Europe. Send me your thoughts in an email today of where you think GBP/EUR will go this week. I think GBP/EUR will come off as I don’t see it going much higher both technically and on fundamentals although Greece could change all that in the space of 24 hours. Will they pull a rabbit out of the hat at the last minute? Probably, although this may be the occasion where they don’t.

Over the next 24 hours I would suggest looking at your exposure if you are Euro buyer or Euro seller and consider a strategy to protect yourself. Also, do consider placing market orders to take advantage of any upside.

GBP/USD

Are we going to 1.60 or not? The move higher has ran out of steam and I think we’ll start to see a pullback and then a shift lower on Cable again. I will hold off forecasting until I send out a full report tomorrow. If you are USD buyer I would suggest that anything above 1.55 is good value at the moment. Feel free to send me an email.
