EUR/JPY Fundamental Analysis October 18, 2012 Forecast

Analysis and Recommendations:

The EUR/JPY continues to climb to trade at 103.02, as investor’s hopes for a Spanish bailout become more likely, the euro is gaining momentum ahead of this week’s EU Summit. Traders are expecting announcements about a negotiated bailout for Spain and the use of the ESM along with a settlement with Greece. Yesterday the WSL and the Financial Times both printed similar articles quoting sources within the Spanish government. It seems the agreements have already been reached.

Reports have surfaced that two senior German lawmakers indicated that they would support a Spanish application for a ‘precautionary credit line’ from the European Stability Mechanism, the eurozone’s permanent bailout fund, sent the single currency gaining amid a risk-on session.

Investors shrugged off news that Greece and its troika of creditors —  the European Union, the International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank — are still working to agree on deficit reduction targets.
