Spanish Vote: EUR/JPY flat lined, no evidence of safe haven flows
Catalonia’s independence referendum fell into chaos on Sunday. Just after midnight, the Catalan government said that the referendum had been approved by 90% of some 2.3 million voters. Meanwhile, Spanish government declared that the referendum had been disrupted.
The common currency may have suffered moderate losses vs. USD in early Asia, however, there are no signs of safe haven flows.
This is evident from the EUR/JPY pair, which recovered from the session low of 132.67 to trade flat lined on the day around 132.90 levels.
The resilience in the EUR/JPY pair adds credence to a Reuters news report, which says, ” dealers have seen no real selling of euros as yet and neither was there any flow to safe havens, with investors reserving judgement.”
Apart from the Spanish news vote, investors could also take cues from the Eurozone PMI number and the unemployment rate
