    * Worries grow about Spain, possibility of Greece exit

    By Jessica Mortimer

    LONDRA, Luglio 23 (Reuters) – Fears Spain will have to seek a
    full sovereign bailout, coupled with mounting worries that
    Greece may leave the euro, sent the euro sliding to a two-year
    low against the dollar and a near 12-year trough against the yen
    il Lunedi.

    Spanish bonds yields soared to their highest levels since
    the euro was created, despite euro zone finance ministers
    approving on Friday terms for a loan of up to 100 miliardi di euro
    for Madrid to recapitalise its banks, e
    analysts said this was the prime driver of the euro’s fall.

    Murcia looked on course to become the second Spanish region
    to request financial assistance from the government, dopo
    Valencia, with media reports suggesting six regions could seek
    aiuto.

    What began as a Spanish banking bailout looks to be moving
    rather quickly towards a possible sovereign bailout. Overlay
    that with increasingly negative news on Greece and you get a
    fairly negative mix, so the path of least resistance for the
    euro is down,” said Jeremy Stretch, currency strategist at CIBC.

    The euro fell to $1.20821, its weakest since June
    2010 and creeping ever closer to the 2010 low of $1.1876.

    Against the yen it dropped more than 1 percent on
    the day to 94.23 yen, a level not seen since late 2000.

    The euro tumbled not just against safe havens like the
    dollar and the yen but also against currencies which usually
    fall in times of heightened risk aversion in financial markets.

    It hit a record low against the Australian dollar
    , a more than 3-1/2 year low against the British pound
    e un 9-1/2 year low against the Norwegian crown
    .

    It is difficult to find any currency the euro can
    outperform, which underlines the sheer uncertainty ahead,”
    CIBC’s Stretch said, adding the perceived risks of a euro zone
    break-up were growing.

    Even any short-term positives or bouts of short-covering
    would only be taken as an excuse to sell the euro, ha detto.

    GREECE WORRIES

    The prognosis for Greece also appeared to darken, solo
    adding to the reasons for investors to sell the euro.

    German magazineDer Spiegelreported on Sunday that the
    International Monetary Fund may not take part in any additional
    financing for Greece, highlighting growing frustration with
    Atene.

    Speaking two days before a team of international lenders
    arrive in Athens to push for further spending cuts in return for
    more rescue payments, Prime Minister Antonis Samaras said Greece
    was in a “Grande Depressione” similar to the United States in the
    1930s.

    Guardando al futuro, analysts said any weakness in euro zone
    provisional purchasing managerssurveys on manufacturing and
    services sector activity due on Tuesday would only add to the
    gloom and intensify selling pressure on the euro.

    With risk aversion back on the rise, the safe-haven U.S.
    dollar and yen found good support. The dollar index
    saltato 0.4 percent to a two-year high of 83.835 and the dollar
    also hit a 19-month high against the Swiss franc.

    The yen was the biggest gainer, rising to a seven-week high
    di 77.94 yen per dollar.
    With such strong risk aversion it is the yen and the dollar
    that will keep gaining against risk currencies,” said Teppei
    Ino, currency analyst at the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ in
    Tokyo. “The Spanish scenario has not been priced in yet.

    The euro fell against the Australian dollar to around
    A$1.1690 and hit a trough of 77.56 pence against sterling.

    But the Australian currency fell sharply against the dollar
    and was last down 0.9 per cento a $1.0280, with traders
    saying worries about slower Chinese growth only added to
    investor risk aversion.
