Daily FX Report

Good morning snowy from Hamburg and welcome to our Daily FX Report.

In Italy after first exit polls from the election in Italy were greeted with relief in Brussels and Berlin yesterday the EUR/USD and the stock markets traded upwards and the interest rates on Italian sovereign bonds dropped. Silvio Berlusconi had fallen short of his goal. His opposite, it seemed, had won the election the candidate Pier Luigi Bersani. But short time later, the election will be exciting again.

Anyways, we wish you a prosperous trading day

Markets review

Actual results showed that Berlusconi had won a majority in the Senate, the second house of parliament. Meanwhile, the ruthless former comedian Beppe Grillo had won 24 percent in the Senate, according to the polls. As a result, Berlusconi and Grillo together have a blocking majority. Without their permission, new laws cannot be passed. They may not like each other, but they are both euro opponent. Both have vowed resistance to the rules and dictates from Berlin. Indeed, they stand opposed to everything that a Bersani government seeks to and must accomplish. Already, there are voices mostly from the Bersani camp speaking of new elections. Post election Italy, they say, is ungovernable. At the very least, it is likely to take some time before a government can be assembled, if it can be done at all. The results from the election on Sunday and Monday present the worst scenario that was possible. Europe is bound to suffer. An ill Italy the third largest economy in the euro zone, with a weak government is bound to once again become a toy for the financial markets. Italians massive, debt will continue to grow, as will risk premiums on Italian bonds and we will see new holes in the country's budget. In parliament, the center left was able to secure a little majority. The lead over Berlusconi's alliance is not huge, but Italian law assures the winner a minimum of 340 seats, representing a 54 percent majority.

Meanwhile, the EUR fell 1 percent to 1.30623 USD, after gaining as much as 1 percent. It touched the 1.30482 USD, the lowest since the 10th of January. The JPY won 1.7 percent to 91.823 per USD after touching 90.882, the strongest since the 31st of January. The JPY currency added 2.7 percent to 119.932 per EUR after gaining as much as 3.6 percent.
