Asian session: The euro slid versus 12 of its 16 major counterparts

00:01 United Kingdom BRC Retail Sales Monitor y/y January +2.2% -0.3%
03:30 Australia Announcement of the RBA decision on the discount rate 4.25% 4.00% 4.25%
05:00 Japan Leading Economic Index December 93.2 93.9 94.3
05:00 Japan Coincident Index December 90.3 93.2

The euro slid versus 12 of its 16 major counterparts before Greek Prime Minister Lucas Papademos hammers out details of measures to curb the nation’s debt with the leaders of three political parties. The 17-nation currency maintained a decline from yesterday on concern Greece’s leaders will fail to reach an agreement allowing the country to get a second bailout from international creditors.

Greece and its international creditors still need to detail 600 million euros ($786 million) of fiscal measures for 2012, a government official said in Athens yesterday. Papademos began a second round of negotiations today with the European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund in Athens on possible spending cuts.

The prime minister will bring the leaders of the three parties supporting him back to the table later today in a bid to forge agreement on terms for a second aid package to prevent the country’s collapse.

The Australian dollar gained against all of its 16 major peers after the central bank maintained the benchmark interest rate at 4.25 percent. All but three of the 27 economists in a Bloomberg News survey had forecast a cut to 4 percent. The Australian dollar advanced 0.7 percent to $1.0797 and touched $1.0811, the strongest since Aug. 2. Leaving the cash rate at 4.25 percent was a big surprise to consensus, so it’s not surprising to see Aussie jumping. The RBA has left the door open for a rate cut going forward, but the onus is going to be on the data.



EUR/USD: during the Asian session the pair fell.

GBP/USD: during the Asian session the pair weakened.

USD/JPY: during the Asian session the pair gain.
