In Spain, the central bank said that the economy emerged from recession in the first quarter, growing at 0.1% from the three months through December. Furthermore, German lawmakers approved loans of as much as 22.4 billion euros for cash – stricken Greece as the lower house of parliament voted 390 to 72 in favor of the 110 billion euro lifeline from the EU and IMF.

GBP/USD – Producer prices in the U.K. advanced 1.4% in April after climbing 0.9% the previous month, exceeding economists’ expectations of 0.5% as the cost of oil increased fanning inflation pressures in the economy. Meanwhile, the result of U.K.’s highly anticipated   election resulted in a hung parliament as the conservative party was just shy of sealing the deal. According to Britain’s constitution, the sitting prime minister in a hung parliament makes the first attempt to forming a ruling a coalition. Looking ahead, the Bank of England is widely expected to keep rates unchanged at 0.50%, and may also hold its bond-purchasing program at 200 billion as it assesses the recovery’s strength and the inflation outlook.
