Who is left to sell euros? Surely anyone who wanted to sell would be short by now, and let's be honest, how much worse can the news get? Maybe in a month the focus will shift to some of the indebted "countries" of the US, whose situation is as if not more precarious than Greece.

I'm short eur/usd and have been for many weeks as an intermediate trend trade, but it's been a frustrating position to have on. I looked back at the last mega-trend in eur/usd, from 0.85 to 1.60 - that took about 8 years so about 3-4 pips a business day of NET movement (if that makes sense). In other words, I do believe we can see 1.10-1.20 in eur/usd, but it might take a while, with the occasional sharp rallies.

150 pip gap higher open on Monday.

Gap down, 20 pips. Followed by upwards then consolidation. I would be surprised if sterling had a big downweek then propped up on the Friday...and if not Friday then a big gap down on Monday for sterling then up all the following week.

Didn't really do much at all comapred to the news out. I think this has to be negative for now, maybe not long term but at least for a few days.

The market is telling us everything we need to know I think. Greece is f*cked, and this aid package is a sticking plaster job which merely buys a bit of time.

Portugal and Spain next. Italy should be ok but if not it starts getting serious there.

Euro will have a twenty handle shortly. Longer term, we wil see 1.20 this year.

All in my humble opinion only of course.
