Forex: Wednesday’s review

Yesterday the euro fell to the lowest level in almost two years against the dollar as Spain struggled to rescue its troubled banks, adding to signs the European debt crisis is spreading to the region’s larger economies. Spain’s 10-year bond yield rose as high as 6.70 percent, approaching the 7 percent level that led to bailouts in Greece, Ireland and Portugal, after central bank Governor Miguel Angel Fernandez Ordonez resigned a month early amid criticism over the nationalization of Bankia group.

The 17-nation currency slid for a seventh day versus the yen, the longest losing streak in four months, after Italy sold less than its maximum target at a debt auction.

The yen and dollar strengthened as investors sought safer assets after a European report showed economic confidence dropped more than economists estimated in May.  The European Commission called for direct euro-bloc aid for troubled banks and touted a Europe-wide deposit-guarantee system and common bond issuance as antidotes to the debt crisis now threatening to overwhelm Spain.


EUR/USD: yesterday the pair fell to a figure, below $1.2400.

GBP/USD: yesterday the pair fell on one and a half figure, below $1.5500.

USD/JPY: yesterday the pair fell to Y79.00.
