    General overview


    The last three trading days the pair has been in the narrow range of 123.30 -123.60.

After the Greek Government showed new proposals at the weekend new investors hoped that Greece did sign an agreement with the international lenders. The sources from the EU reported that Greece's new proposal is ambitious, still they need to solve the pensions and VAT issues. As we know Greece could not come to an agreement with creditors. So the optimism that was in the week beginning – vanished.

    Three trading days has shown the pound's weakness, the current levels look attractive for the medium-term investors who are counting on the upward trend continuation.

    There was a predominance of bearish sentiment and long positions profit taking in the US and the Japanese stock market. Investors closed their carry trade transactions which creates a demand for the Japanese yen as a funding currency.

Otherwise, we expect the sales waves amid the carry trade transactions closure and demand for the Japanese yen as a funding currency.


    The price is finding the first support at 122.40, the next one is at 121.60. The price is finding the first resistance at 123.50, the next one is at 124.30.

    Fundamental analysis


    The pair euro/dollar started the week with the price gap near the level of 1.0980 amid the negative Greek referendum results, concerning the anti-crisis plan. But after the US ISM service sector publication bulls managed to recover some of the losses. As a result, the tool closed the day with a decrease.


    Due to the negative US statistics, the pair pound/dollar was able to fix its growth. However the pair decreased by the end of the day and closed the trades in the “red zone”.


    The pair dollar/yen has finished the day with the negative sentiment. Investors escaped from the risky assets, giving preference to the "safe Japanese currency".


    The Greeks refused to accept the creditors offer in the referendum, concerning conditions for obtaining new loans. Thus, the Greece exit from the European Union risk has been intensified that put pressure on the European currency. According to the voting results 61% of citizens said "no" in the referendum.


    The EU leaders meeting took place on Tuesday in Brussels. The purpose of the meeting was to give an adequate assessment to the referendum results and consider next steps in the negotiations that were stopped after the referendum results.

The Fed is still only gave promises to raise the rate. In addition, the sentiments were determined by the commodity and the bond market dynamics.

    Unlike most majors which gradually begin to strengthen against the US dollar, the pound is actively declining, breaking through on its way strong support levels. However the pound tried to correct but unsuccessfully.
