The single currency has given up some ground this morning as euro zone periphery bond yields have firmed further. The market also saw some reaction to the Rheinische Post story (see first headline)
EUR/USD down at 1.2230 from early 1.2260, having been as low as 1.2227 after sell stops tripped quickly through both 1.2240 and 1.2230. Buy orders seen clustered 1,2200/10, more sell stops below there.
USD/JPY down 10 pips at 78.50. EUR/JPY down at 96.03 from early 96.35. Talk of barrier option interest at 96.00.
Cable hardly changed, down 5 pips at 1.5697 from the 1.5702 which greeted me. EUR/GBP down at 7790 from early .7804.
