How to interpret these headlines:?

Market is preparing for a Spain Bank Bailout Request this weekend although there are no official confirmations from the Spanish Government.  Sources early on in the week have confirmed that a minimum of 50B euro is needed for Spain to recapitalize its banking sector, although the actual number could be much higher than expected.  Either way, market has been trying to price in this new development and we are likely going to see further weakness in the Euro as markets open for trading on Sunday.

The key focus will be on whether a bailout request is made and how much… if it is more than the 50 billion expected, then market could react by selling more Euro… of course, if no bailout request is made, then we may see a bit more support for the Euro, but don’t be fooled into buying Euro because it is only a matter of time…  My view for the Euro is still to sell on rally as the overall fundamental for Europe remains bleak.
