Forex: EUR/USD eases to 1.2940

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The single currency is back to the area of 1.2940/45 on Friday after hitting intraday highs above 1.2960 on stops-triggering and hopes of a final agreement in Cyprus.
In the meantime, last news from Cyprus remarks that officials are mulling the idea of lower levy on bank-deposits (5%-7%), going back to the basics of the former plan albeit with modifications.

At the moment, the cross is up 0.39% at 1.2945 and a surpass of 1.2966 (MA10d) would aim for 1.2979 (high Mar.20) and finally 1.3017 (MA21d).
On the other hand, support levels align at 1.2879 (MA200d) en route to 1.2844 (low Mar.19) and then 1.2827 (low Nov.22).

Silver plunges below 28.60, support broken

Proponents of silver will look for a recovery up to the 28.80 level, onto the eventual 29.00 barrier for prolonged stability.
