The EUR/USD remained below the 1.20 level ahead of the NY morning but off its fresh 4-year lows of 1.1878 seen in thin Asian trading. Overall sentiment remained vulnerable following the tepid private US payroll report last week. For the moment dealers question how much faith does one put in new Asian market on a Monday. On a technical front the EUR/USD appears to be 'oversold' and over 15% from its 200-day moving average. The JPY saw its Asian gains reverse and was marginally softer against other major pairs.

He further stated that he had been through two Brazilian crises and the Asian crisis and this is by far the biggest issue I have seen by an order of magnitude. ***Australia Prime Minister Rudd is reportedly to continue discussions with mining companies on super-profits tax; Believes the structure and rate of the mining tax are appropriate. *** The G20 meeting in South Korea ended with mixed results with the final communique supporting the idea of fiscal tightening due to the sovereign debt issues in Europe. Note the prior G20 communique in April supported government stimulus to assist with the economic recovery. US Treasury Secretary Geithner commented that Europe and Japan need to boost domestic demand and balance fiscal consolidation with growth, and that fiscal tightening could affect demand. With regards to a proposal on a global bank tax, there was little agreement as countries with banks that required no government assistance objected to the idea. The bank tax issue ended with no agreement with discussions temporarily abandoned until a later time.
