Bank of England keeps makes no statement at its interest rate decision. Preliminary demand orders for Greeces 10-year bond offering reached 16 bln. It is not clear when the bond offering will actually take place. France says a Franco-German aid for Greece is NOT on the agenda, which fuels speculation that Greece will seek assistance from the IMF, in which case would be a positive for the euro. We stick with the $1.3770 interim resistance followed by key ceiling at $1.3850, while renewing our call for the $1.32 target before end of quarter. AUDUSD failure to breach above the 100-day MA of 0.9065-70 level (did not close above it) is consistent with our alert for emerging risk aversion (as was the case in the week of Dec 1).
