smart money doing now given the recent strength. we bring in george davis from rbc capital markets. george, welcome. we have george? >> good afternoon. >> all right, good. what do you think -- where does the ltro this week, where does all of this now factor in to where the euro is going to go over the next several days? >> well, in terms of the shorter-term risks for the euro, i do think they are tilted to the top side. based on shorter-term tenders that we saw today, there was a much bigger uptake in the one-day tender there's the seven-day. i think that basically shifts the risk for the ltro to be larger than expected. and i think given the risk on back drop that we're seeing right now that's going to be considered in a positive light for the euro. so i do think over the next couple of days we could potentially see an extension up towards the 1.35.30 to the 1.5550 area. >> your trade today is selling the area but against the aussie dollar not the u.s. dollar. >> that's right. it's a little bit of a -- that's correct. it's a little bit of a relative strength play on the risk on th

euro zone. from george davis, chief technical analyst. george, give us your best guess on where to expect the euro to head from here given the developments we expect to come out of the euro zone in the next day or few. >> well, i think over the next couple of days we could see a little bit of a push higher, perhaps up towards the 133, 133.5 level on optimism about an agreement with the regard to the greek psi deal but at that point i think the bias is still going to be overall to fade rallies in the euro because i think as these various agreements and bailouts work their way through the euro zone economy that austerity will cause a severe slowdown and a drag on the euro. so i think the overall bias is to fade rallies in the euro. >> is the positive news we expect built in at 131, 130 and change looking at right now? >> i think to a certain extent it is. over the last couple of weeks we have seen a good appreciation in the euro and a lot of that has been on anticipation of a positive outcome with regard to the negotiation so i agree. i think that there is a lot of good news built in
