Buyers are drawing strength from the growth on the euro crosses (EURAUD, EURNZD and EURGBP), which is allowing them to keep their heads above the 1.1200 mark.

A negative impact on the foreign exchange market may cause a drop on the SP500. The overall sentiment for the single currency remains negative with the target at 1.1170.
