01[11:58] {@Threei}  The euro has slipped futher this morning, with EUR/USD dropping to 1.0560 earlier, a fresh 12-year low. The euro has lost nearly 10% of its value versus the dollar since the ECB announced in January that it would undertake QE. EUR/GBP dropped through the key psychological level of 1.5000. With dollar parity only a matter of time, ECB's Nowotny said he was nervous there may be too much success with QE.
01[11:59] {@Threei}  Dollar strength is only making life harder for oil, even as inventory builds take a breather. WTI crude dipped below $47.50 in the wake of the DOE weekly inventory report mid-morning before rising back toward $48. The front month Brent contract was as low as $56.00 earlier today, bounced higher then dipped back toward $56.
01[12:00] {@Threei}  The fallout from the oil collapse is claiming yet another victim. Whiting Petroleum, the largest producer in North Dakota's Bakken shale, has reportedly put itself up for sale. This is only the first of what many analysts expect to be a wave of sector consolidation. Many suggest the likeliest takeover candidates include Continental, Apache, Devon Energy and Anadarko Petroleum.
