Euro decreased by good last week, but now is the question of whether the decline continued. The question is really very relevant, because the euro has almost reached a significant level of support that I have not written because I did not expect to decrease below 1.30 as early as this week.

Expect that level is broken can be morning and afternoon, against the background of how the falling pound and metals, in the evening I was almost sure that the euro will be able to overcome the level of support after the sale began on the U.S. stock market.

Worse, Belgium that was previously little affected by the consequences of the crisis could see in the near future his note degraded due to the country’s political situation.
