Euro Fears Escalate

Spanish recession fears continued to weigh heavily on the Euro following a rise in Spanish and Italian bond yields and a sharp deterioration in Eurozone investor confidence  yesterday.
The euro was  inching back up again  today versus GBP – but traders say the currency has nothing to push it dramatically in either direction. The  Pound was worth  €1.2126  today at 4pm.

The Pound was helped when the OECD affirmed that the British economy is on the brink of a lasting recovery, amid signs of a positive change in momentum.
