The Greek election results are most likely going to give the New Democracy party a majority. If not, a coalition government including the ND, Pasok(socialist), and the leftist Democracy party is likely, now that the Syriza party has conceded and refuses to join any coalition government.
The EUR/USD surges above previous week’s high near 1.2666, pushing above 1.27.
EUR/USD Daily Chart 6:40AM EDT 6/15/2012
EUR/USD is now trading around 1.2735 at 6:45PM EDT, extending the EUR/USD recovery. The market has been putting risk back on based on expectations that central banks will come to the rescue. The election also puts the pro-bailout party in charge of the parliament in Athens so this is no drama compared to if the Syriza party were to be victorious. The EUR/USD therefore has some upside to begin the week.
Looking at the daily chart, let’s examine some fibonacci projections based on our first leg of recovery from June 1 to June 11. The second leg started on June 12, projects to a wave equality at 1.2768.
Just above that at 1.2820, we have a resistance pivot from May 18 and 21.
Then as you project the 2nd leg of recovery to 161.8% expansion of the 1st, we approach the key level at 1.30. This was the support area since February until it was broken in May. This would also be near a declining trendline connect 3 resistance pivots since February.
