EU session review: Euro weakens on concern Europe will struggle debts

The euro weakened for the first time in three days against the dollar on concern euro-area leaders will struggle to resolve the debt crisis, damping demand for the region’s assets.
The shared currency weakened after Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou said he’ll press ahead with additional austerity measures even as he failed to win backing from opposition parties.
“There’s still a lot of uncertainty about the possibility of a Greek restructuring and what is going to be done to help it refinance itself,” said You-na Park, a currency strategist at Commerzbank AG. “That’s driving the euro weaker.”
Greece’s Antonis Samaras, leader of the biggest opposition party, New Democracy, rejected Papandreou’s plan at a meeting with him and other opposition leaders in Athens, saying his party wouldn’t be blackmailed.
European Union officials have called for consensus on the package, which includes an extra 6 billion euros ($8.6 billion) of budget cuts and a plan to speed 50 billion euros of state-asset sales.
“There are definitely still peripheral European problems,” said Osao Iizuka at Sumitomo Trust & Banking Co.. “The uncertainty is likely to weigh on the euro.”
The euro has fallen 2.1% in the past month.
The Swiss franc has strengthened 3.8% and the yen has added 2.4%.
Demand for New Zealand’s dollar was bolstered after the nation’s statistics bureau said today that exports outpaced imports by NZ$1.11 billion ($910 million) from a revised NZ$578 million surplus in March. The median estimate was for a NZ$600 million surplus.

EUR/USD back to $1.4284 after earlier it weakened to $1.4255. Resistance remains between $1.4285/90.

GBP/USD continues to holds under pressure, thus above support at $1.6460/50. Stops noted through $1.6445/40 with further support noted into $1.6430.

USD/JPY still holds within the Y80.75/90.
