Asian session: the euro fell

Euro bears driving the region’s shared currency to its first two-month loss in a year are facing rising interest rates, bullish bets in futures markets and Angela Merkel’s determination to keep the 17-nation bloc intact.

The euro slid 4.2 percent since April as mounting concern that Greece would default drove Prime Minister George Papandreou to change finance ministers amid a push for 78 billion euros ($111 billion) in austerity measures to tap more financial aid. 
The slowing U.S. recovery has also provided support for the euro. The Fed lowered its full-year growth forecast last week, saying the economy will expand 2.7 percent to 2.9 percent versus a range of 3.1 percent to 3.3 percent estimated in April. The Bundesbank said on June 10 that German gross domestic product will rise 3.1 percent in 2011, up from a 2.5 percent increase predicted in February.
The first session of a three-day debate in Greece on new budget cuts is scheduled to begin today. A vote is expected on June 29. An implementation law, which provides the technical details of how the five-year plan will be applied, is also due to be discussed and approved by the deadline of June 30.

GBP/USD: the pair shown low in $1,5910 area then become stronger.
USD/JPY: the pair become stronger in  Y80,80 area.
