Recap: The Euro slid sharply against the Dollar as there continues to be shifting expectations about a possible bailout package of Greece.

The news pushed the EUR/USD to a 10-month low. Feeding off the risk aversion in the markets and as the main destination for safe-haven flows, the US Dollar strengthened in today's trading.
