Pres Obama first appeared to say that bankruptcy of GM is out of the question, but adding an extra 60-day grace period was interpreted as delaying rather than avoiding bankruptcy, which is dragging on equities.

EURUSD seen testing $1.3070, as markets may anticipate a very dovish rate cut from the ECB on Thursday.
