BBG: With Greece poised to miss a deadline this month that would conclude a review of its latest bailout, the government of Alexis Tsipras risks reprising the antagonistic relationship with his country's creditors that nearly knocked the nation out of the common currency in 2015. Over the weekend, Prime Minister Tsipras lashed out again at the International Monetary Fund, one the institutions monitoring Greece's rescue, as the auditors insisted on legislation that would trigger further budget cuts if fiscal targets are missed. That gives Athens about a week to reconcile those differences. Even though the European institutions have disagreed with IMF projections and said Greece didn't need the extra measures to meet requirements set out in its 86 billion-euro ($92 billion) bailout, they have fallen into line to keep the fund involved, according to a person with knowledge of the talks. Blaming the IMF for the deadlock is a strategy that may not work anymore as Tsipras faces a more aligned group.
EURUSD was dragged lower by the broad USDJPY buying earlier, but the 1.0600 handle managed to hold thus far. A congruence of factors are seen dragging EURUSD lower, including political developments and broad USD selling, as well as technical indicators pointing towards more downside. A break of 1.0600 therefore seems to be more likely than not within the day. Small stops are seen below 1.0600.
