    Finland's caretaker government wins the support from the opposition Social Democrats that enables it to approve the €78B ($112.4B) EU-IMF bailout for Portugal. The electoral success of the True Finns had put Finland's endorsement in doubt. EU FinMins can now sign off on the rescue next week.

    The euro regains some footing, +0.7% vs. the dollar after last week's 600 pip implosion, of which the Greece rumors Friday afternoon were merely the coup de grace. The fall began when ECB President Trichet indicated a slower pace of rate increases and a desire for a strong dollar.

    Greek CDS spreads increase by 3.2% as investors confront renewed worries about the ability of the country to pay its debt. Irish and Portuguese spreads rise as well, but worst performing of all are Spanish CDS, which rise 4.1%, but remain just one fifth the level of Greece.

    The removal of the word "vigilance" from Trichet's opening statement this morning and a nod to Geithner/Bernanke talking up the dollar was more than a signal the ECB was going to pause its rate hikes, says Steve Liesman. It could be the ECB is waiting for the Fed to make the next rate move. FXE -2.0%.

    As Trichet's press conference ends, the key takeaway appears to be the ECB waving the white flag on the euro's strength. Look for another pause in rate hikes at the June meeting. FXE -0.9%.

    The euro continuing to fall as Trichet says he never talks about the currency's level, but praises recent statements by Geithner and Bernanke for pushing a strong dollar. Good one! Euro at $1.469.

    Business is booming at FiREapps, where CEO Wolfgang Koester says U.S. firms are clamoring to hedge against dollar weakness. Jeff Macke notes companies getting swept up in this sort of worry could mark the sign of a market extreme - witness airlines' rush to hedge near the top of the 2008 oil mania.

    The euro takes out another milestone in its powerful 2011 bull run, topping $1.49 vs. the dollar, assisted by very dovish comments from the Fed's Eric Rosengren. The $1.50 level was last seen in late 2009. Beyond that is the euro's all time high of around $1.60, hit shortly before Lehman went bust. Premarket: FXE +0.6%.

    Eurozone retail sales fell sharply in March, sinking 1.0% vs. expectations for a 0.1% drop. Some aren't sweating the numbers, saying they're volatile, often revised, and a late Easter is responsible for much of the decline. Also, it's near a week into May. Euro +0.2%.

    An anonymous EU official claims a preliminary deal for Portugal's bailout is imminent. Potential hurdles are political parties jostling for position in Portugal ahead of June elections, and the rise of the anti-bailout True Finns in Finland.
