forexsq - The euro fell for the first time in six days against the yen before European finance ministers reconvene in Brussels to decide on aid for Greece.
The 17-nation currency weakened versus all but two of its major counterparts as European stocks declined, damping demand for the regionâ€™s assets. The euro also dropped after pro- independence parties in Spainâ€™s Catalonia won a majority in a regional vote, underpinning a drive for a referendum on secession in defiance of Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy. The yen strengthened as a technical indicator signaled the currencyâ€™s recent decline may have been excessive.
