FXstreet.com (Edinburgh) -The bearish sentiment surrounding the bloc currency is dragging the EUR/USD to fresh lows around 1.3380 on Wednesday, ahead of the FOMC minutes.

EUR/USD lower on Greece

Rumours that Greece might need a third bailout continues to heat up the FX markets today, following German finmin W.Schaeuble’s comments on Tuesday, assessing that the Hellenic Republic will need another bailout apart from the rescue loans aimed to the 2010-2014 period. In the opinion of Stephen Gallo, Strategist at BMO, “Earlier episodes of bond market volatility have not managed to drag the EUR lower in a sustainable way yet because they’ve not been large enough, rapid enough or persistent enough. The defence barrier created by the ECB’s promise to execute OMTs last year is still incredibly thick. Still, when other FX flows fade away, a slowing of Fed balance sheet expansion is a net negative for the EUR”.
