EUR/GBP Analysis Forecast For 21 May 2015

Analysis and Recommendations (EUR/GBP Analysis Forecast):

The EUR/GBP dipped 19 points as the euro continued to fall after the ECB indicated that they might step up their bond buying program in June. The pair is trading at 0.7165. The Greek government’s parliamentary speaker warning that it will not make a repayment to the International Monetary Fund on June 5 if there is no deal with its creditors by then. Of as much importance may be a discussion at the ECB on Wednesday of whether to trim the life-support it is providing cash-strapped Greek banks.

The euro nursed steep losses early on Wednesday, having suffered a major setback as the European Central Bank looked to accelerate the pace of money printing to buy government bonds over the next two months.

Comments from ECB executive board member Benoit Coeure first sent markets into a flurry. He said the speed of the recent spike in bond yields was worrisome and that the ECB could “moderately” increase its buying in May and June so that it did not fall below its monthly buying target.
