Europe’s shared currency extended losses against all of its major counterparts after the Wall Street Journal, citing unidentified people with knowledge of the matter, reported that Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA, Spain’s second largest bank by market capitalization, has been unable to renew about $1 billion of short-term funding.
A spokesman for BBVA in Madrid, who asked not to be identified by name because of bank policy, declined to comment on the report in a phone interview today.
„The bad news is spreading in Spain and the euro sold off,“ said Hidetoshi Yanagihara, a senior currency trader at Mizuho Corporate Bank Ltd. in New York. „If the situation in euro-land gets worse we might see another selloff in stock market and dollar-yen and the yen crosses all follow.“
On May 22, the Bank of Spain said it had appointed a provisional administrator to run CajaSur, a savings bank crippled by property-loan defaults. The seizure is the first under a state-financed rescue plan that Standard & Poor’s estimates may cost as much as 35 billion euros, increasing the burden on Spain’s finances as the government tries to reduce its budget deficit.
