A high-profile catalyst for UK rate speculation was positioned to take the spotlight from the ongoing debate over Greece. Yet, activity would not follow anticipation. Counting down the days to Monday's Eurogroup meeting where terms for Greece's stop gap are to be discussed, market participants were caught off guard by a fresh round of assertive and combative commentary. Prime Minister Tsipras kept to a hard line that a bridge loan and favorable austerity changes were to be expected on Monday. Meanwhile, Eurozone officials would contradict the claims of progress. Between this ebb and flow, EURUSD progressed in its rebound and the S&P 500 moved within view of a fresh record highs. Meanwhile, the Bank of England's Quarterly Inflation report struck a slightly more dovish tone, yet GBPUSD broke a seven-month trend channel. Is the Dollar setting up for a turn that can carry the cable higher? We look at what is driving the markets and attempt to assess where in today's Trading Video.
