The euro remains under pressure as investors await Greece's referendum, which will be held this Sunday. A survey conducted June 28-30 and published in Efimerida ton Syntakton showed that 54% of Greeks intend to say 'no' to lenders' conditions and 33% plan to vote 'yes'. However it's worth taking a look at polls conducted before and after the implementation of capital controls. Before this decision 57% of respondents said they would oppose lenders' conditions and 30% would agree. After the implementation of capital controls the numbers changed to 46% and 37% respectively.
Strong U.S. employment data would put additional pressure on the single currency. Yesterday ADP reported that employers added 7,000 jobs to 237,000 vs expectations of an increase to 220,000.
