Rumors continue to swirl, day in and day out, that Spain will have to tap the euro SPV to avoid bankruptcy.

Today is no exception

Oddly, despite the rumors, the euro remains strongly underpinned as short-covering rules the day so far. A G7 conference call this afternoon has not ruffled feathers either.

Offers in the mid-1.2270s continue to keep a lid on EUR/USD near-term. Look for some selling below 1.22050 from intraday longs frustrated by the inability to get to the 1.2285 stops a yet. EUR trades at 1.2254.
