Eurogroup approves Robin Hood tax

Eleven Eurozone countries (Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Austria, Portugal, Belgium, Estonia, Greece, Slovakia and Slovenia) have been authorized to start working on a financial transactions tax (the so-called Robin Hood tax). Eurozone finance ministers have given the green light to the measure today, during the Eurogroup meeting held in Brussels. The tax is based on an idea put forward by the economist James Tobin over forty years ago and its current application is aimed at controlling banks and speculative activities, such as high frequency operations, as each agreement will be taxed.

The Spanish Tesoro P├║blico held a debt auction on Tuesday during which it sold 2.9 billion euros worth of 3- and 6- month bonds. 1.206 billion euros of 3-month bonds were auctioned at an average yield of 0.441%, compared with 1.195% seen at the previous auction. 1.578 billion euros worth of 6-month bonds, were sold at an average yield of 0.888% versus the previous 1.609%. Following the auction Spanish risk premium remained at the level of 355 points.-FXstreet.com

Upwards scenario: We place our next resistance level at 1.3321 (R1). One should note here that in case of penetration above it opens the way for a return to 1.3331 (R2) and potential is seen to reach final target for today at 1.3340 (R3). Downwards scenario: The downside formation might face next supportive barrier at 1.3302 (S1). Clearance here is required to open way towards to our next target at 1.3292 (S2) and any further fall would then be targeting 1.3282 (R3).

If instrument gains momentum on the upside and manage to overcome it we expect to see retest of our intraday targets at 88.84 (R2) and 88.99 (R3) on the intraday basis. Downwards scenario: The USDJPY is poised to move lower on the medium-term perspective. Next barrier ahead is seen at 88.14 (S1).A break below this mark would suggest next intraday targets at 87.97 (R2) and 87.83 (R3) in potential.
