Uncertainty over Italy continues to linger after the re-election of G.Napolitano as President of the Republic and P.L.Bersani’s resignation as leader of the centre-left.

At the moment, the cross is losing 0.06% at 1.3068 with the next support at 1.3048 (low Apr.19) followed by 1.3001 (low Apr.17) and then 1.2967 (MA2d).
On the flip side, a breakout of 1.3202 (high Apr.16) would expose 1.3229 (50% of Feb.-Apr. slide) and finally 1.3319 (high Feb.25).
