Forex: Monday’s review

Yesterday the euro strengthened to an almost three-week high against the dollar as French Finance Minister Francois Baroin said negotiations between Greece and its private creditors are making “tangible progress.”

The 17-nation currency gained versus 13 of its 16 major counterparts tracked by Bloomberg as European Union finance ministers gather in Brussels to discuss a Greek debt swap, budget rules and a financial firewall to protect indebted nations.

Bondholders negotiating a debt swap with Greece have made their “maximum” offer, leaving it to the EU and International Monetary Fund to decide whether to accept the deal, said Charles Dallara, managing director of the Washington-based Institute of International Finance, who’s representing private creditors in the talks.

The pound fell 0.7 percent to 83.61 pence per euro after profit alerts increased by more than 70 percent in the final quarter of 2011 at U.K.-listed companies, the biggest jump since the first three months of 2001, according to Ernst & Young LLP.


EUR/USD: yesterday the pair has grown on one and a half figure, having fixed the positions above $1.3000.

GBP/USD: yesterday the pair has grown to $1.5600, but has receded from this high later.

USD/JPY: yesterday the pair was in range Y76.85-Y77.05.
