FXStreet (Guatemala) - Analysts at TD Securities noted that the markets are busy at the start of the week for the US and Europe post overnight headlines in Japan.

Key Quotes:

“Weak growth raises renewed doubts about the government’s ability or desire to push on with the 2015 leg of the sales tax increase”.
