Mid-Day Report: Euro Soft in Quiet Markets as Greece Preparing for Negotiation
Euro is mildly softer in quite markets today. Trading activities are subdued ahead of July 4 holiday in US. Nonetheless, Euro pared some EU summit triggered gains against dollar and yen as Greece is starting to prepare for austerity re-negotiation. A spokesman from the new Greek government, Kedikoglou, said that they're going to present "astounding" information to troika on Wednesday, which are "alarming in terms of the recession and unemployment". He said that it's "beyond any doubt" that the current policy brings the "opposite results". Socialist leader Venizelos said that Greece "cannot remain indifferent to this deep recessions.... unemployment rate that exceeds 22% and 55% among young people. Venizelos urged that "extension of the economic adjustment program is the cornerstone of the country's strategy and of the basis of the coalition government's cooperation".

EUR/USD Mid-Day Outlook
Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.2537; (P) 1.2607 (R1) 1.2646; More.....
Intraday bias in EUR/USD remains neutral for the moment. But consolidations should be brief and the corrective rise from 1.2287 is expected to resume sooner rather than later. Above 1.2747 will target 100% projection of 1.2287 to 1.2747 from 1.2406 at 1.2866 next. Though, we'd expect strong resistance from 61.8% retracement of 1.3282 to 1.2287 at 1.2902 to limit upside. After all, fall from 1.4939 is still expected to continue for another low below 1.2287. But break of 1.2406 is needed to signal completion of the current consolidation first.
RBA Paused After Two Consecutive Months Of Rate Cuts
The RBA expectedly left the cash rate unchanged at 3.5% in June, following two consecutive cuts totaling 75 bps in May and June. Governor Glenn Stevens saw growth in the country during the inter-meeting period and anticipated inflation to be inline with the target. Notwithstanding uncertainty and potential downside risks in the global economy, the central bank believed the monetary stance is appropriate. In our opinion, the meeting statement indicated no bias on future policy rate outlook.
