Eurozone crisis still far from over

Eurozone unemployment reached a record high of 11.8% in November, the European Commission reported on Tuesday. Data also showed an increase in youth unemployment to 24.4%. This proves that the crisis in the area is still far from over, despite recent opinions to the contrary (including European Commission head Jose Manuel Barroso’s hopeful declarations this morning). Martin van Vliet from ING, who notices this latest wave of optimism among Eurozone consumers and businesses suggests that “with more fiscal austerity in the pipeline, the debt crisis still unresolved, and unemployment rising (and hitting a fresh record high of 11.8% in November), consumers and hence businesses still have plenty to worry about. Moreover, despite the recent improvement, Eurozone economic sentiment remains in recession territory.”

German Chancellor Angela Merkel held a meeting with Greek PM Antonis Samaras in Berlin on Tuesday, during which the Greek leader assured that his country was delivering on promises to implement austerity measures and was carrying out reforms in return for European aid. “We are trying to win back credibility, on the part of the people of Europe and on the part of the markets,” Samaras told reporters during a press conference. Angela Merkel praised Greece’s efforts to reduce its debt load so far and expressed her interest in the progress of implementation of the previously agreed austerity measures. She also warned that 2013 will be a tough year for the Eurozone. “We must agree on stronger economic policy cooperation by June this year, and there is plenty of work ahead of us,” she said.-FXstreet.com

Downwards scenario: Fresh low, formed today is pointing to key short-term support level at 1.3067 (S1).

Strengthening above it would point to resistive structure at 87.71 (R2) onto 87.86 (R3). Downwards scenario: If the pair gains momentum today on the downside and overcome our next support level at 87.22 (S1) then intraday outlook would turn into negative territory.
