The Australian dollar showed little reaction after the Reserve Bank of Australia left its key interest rate unchanged at 2% in line with expectations. The central bank decided not to take any actions despite current risks to the economy arising from uncertainty over Greece and sharp declines in Chinese stocks. RBA Governor Glenn Stevens reiterated that further declines in the Australian dollar are required.
The euro traded lower ahead of today's euro zone summit. It is expected that Greece and its lenders will be unable to come to an understanding today. However markets partly consider a possibility of a deal and they will be disappointed if there is no progress.
Germany and France have called on Athens to make new proposals after Greeks voted against austerity terms. Greece's banks have been closed for more than a week and only urgent lending may prevent their insolvency. At the same time investors started to treat the euro better after Greece's finance minister Yanis Varoufakis resigned on Monday.
