Market review for 28.05.12: The opinion polls conducted in Greece showed positive results.


Asian and European trading sessions:

Euro: The Euro currency opened this day with the gap up against all its competitors on news which came from Greece. The pre-election positions of the parties that support the European Union conditions have shown good improvement as it was recorded as result of opinion polls conducted in Greece. This positive news weakened the concerns about the situation with possible exit of Greece from the euro zone. The EUR / USD pair rose to $ 1.2622 during the Asian session. However the concerns still remain due to the fact that the yield of the Italian and Spanish debt securities is higher than the critical mark of 6.0%, while the spread on 10- year bonds of Spain and Germany surpassed the record high mark of 500 b.p. Also, the Spanish Bank “Bankia”, which is the largest mortgage lender in the country, warned the government that it will need an additional 19 billion Euros aid to fight the crisis. As it was posted before, the international agency Standard & Poor’s downgraded the credit rating of “Bankia”, from BBB -to BB +. The collapse of the bank would jeopardize the situation in the whole banking sector in the country and impact negatively all financial markets in Europe and beyond. The EUR / USD pulled back towards closing the earlier open gap, to the area of Friday’s close $ 1.2515.
