Portugal next for EU bailout?

28 July, 2011


The Eurozone is urging Portugal to seek aid. Portugal’s bonds fell on concern they will follow Ireland and Greece and present a formal request to Europe’s rescue fund, similar to that of Ireland earlier in the week.

As a result the Euro has been slowly weakening (getting cheaper) this week, and we now have the best rates for sending Euro payments since mid-September. Conversely, investors are buying up US Dollars, which has brought the exchagne rate down to its worst level for a month.
