FOREX - Euro traded near 2-month low
Euro licks wounds near a two-month low on Wednesday, hit by uncertainty in Greece and weak German business confidence data, which highlighted the growing alarm in the strong European economy.
Euro traded at $ 1.2702, down on weak data German ZEW sentiment survey to $ 1.2661 on Tuesday, its lowest level in more than two months.
However, hopes that international creditors are close to paying by affinity helped the single currency found support.
German newspaper reported that Germany wants Greece to provide assistance to a single payment by more than 44 billion euros, and German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble, later said that the idea is being considered.
However, this can not happen until its creditors reached a broad agreement and the International Monetary Fund and euro zone policymakers are differences over the long-term program of Greek debt and the adoption of further losses on Greek debt.
"At the moment, the focus of the market - whether they decide to deal on Greece next week," said Teppei Ino, a currency analyst at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ.
Another meeting of Eurogroup to take place on November 20, but officials said that could take a week after the approval of the new deal.
The dollar, whose huge liquidity makes it a safe haven asset for investors, has also been supported by concerns about the U.S. financial cliff - the impending budget cuts and tax increases that threaten the U.S. economy sliding into recession, if Congress can not agree on a deal by year's end .

Support for the pair is at 1.2660, and resistance - at 1.2730. Although there are some talk of extending the period of repayment for Greece, the fact that the debt-laden country avoid default in the short term by attracting 4.063 billion euros - that's good news for the market.

Japanese lawmakers agree to avoid "financial cliff"
The ruling and opposition parties in Japan agreed on Tuesday to quickly adopt a bill about the lack of funding to keep the country from falling their version of "financial cliff" since the election of the Prime Minister in the next month.
The bill addresses the need to borrow $ 480 billion and to fund approximately 40 percent of the budget in the current fiscal year. Without it, the government may not have enough money by the end of this month and possibly stop the auction of debt in the next month, as the economy is on the brink of recession. Until recently, the opposition used its control of the upper house to account suspension in an attempt to pressure on Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda. Noda pledged in August that the elections "soon" in order to win support for an unpopular sales tax plan. However, the head of the opposition Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) and former ally New Komeito coalition changed tactics and are ready to pass a bill deficit as a condition for calling elections. "I am delighted that we have demonstrated the wisdom of parliament, overcoming differences between the ruling and opposition parties", - told reporters Goshi Hosono, the chief policy of the ruling Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ). "We were able to show people, even at the last minute that the Parliament works," he said, after a deal with two colleagues from the opposition parties. The bill is expected to pass in the House on Thursday and is likely to be passed in the upper house with the support of the two opposition parties in the current session of Parliament, which ends on November 30.
In the achievement of the transaction, the Democrats made concessions to the opposition, promise to review the costs intended for the current fiscal year, and to curb the deficit issue bonds. The three parties agreed to allow the issuance of deficit bonds in the fiscal year that begins in April 2015, which means the passage of bills of deficit bonds will be secured without account being taken as a political hostage in the next few years.
