  • Hard to know quite which way things are going to go – however, I think politicians in countries like Spain are going to find it increasingly difficult to maintain the line “we can’t do anything, we don’t control the currency any more”

    Spain’s economy is imploding in such a dramatic fashion, it seems almost inevitable that there will be an outbreak of civil unrest before the summer is out. Whether that will be on such a scale as to topple the govt is anyone’s guess, but the pressure on politicians to act unilaterally in defence of their national interest will be immense.

    If the break-up of the eurozone seemed imminent, it is very likely that the euro’s value would collapse.

  • Yes but, does this mean the short sellers are now at a zenith? ie there are no more punters from this point on to sell the €, or add to their shorts?

    Wouldn’t that mean the trades entering the market will be mainly the buyers? So the € is due a rally for a few weeks then.
