The USD came off a six-week high against the euro in trading today, after news that Greece had once again failed to come to reach a debt swap deal with its creditors. Earlier in the day, the EUR/USD reached as high as 1.3231 before investors began selling off the pair. The AUD/USD also saw a substantial drop, falling well over 100 pips during the European trading session. The greenback failed to move up against the yen, as investors chose to keep their funds with the safe-haven Japanese currency.
Turning to tomorrow, dollar pairs are likely to be influenced by any announcements out of the euro-zone which may lead to further risk aversion. Traders will want to pay particular attention to any news out of Greece. While a Greek debt swap deal is likely to be finalized by the end of the week, safe-haven currencies may continue to go up until a final agreement is announced.
With regards to the rest of the week, traders will want to keep in mind that a batch of US data is forecasted to have a significant impact on the markets. Wednesday's ADP Non-Farm Employment Change figure, as well as the ISM Manufacturing PMI are both considered valid indicators of the current state of the US economy. Furthermore, a speech from the Fed Chairman on Thursday, followed by the Non-Farm Employment Change figure on Friday, are both likely to generate substantial market activity.
