One of the triggering points behind the recent euro rally has been the announcement of success in German coalition talks to form a grand coalition between the Social Democrats (SPD), Chancellor Angela Merkel's Conservatives (CDU & CSU) and the Greens.

The Social Democratic Party (SPD) is scheduled to hold an extraordinary party conference on January 21 to seek approval from its delegates for the preliminary agreement and enter into formal negotiations. Over the weekend, the state of Saxony-Anhalt voted similarly.

Many of the SPD's grassroots supporters say the coalition blueprint agreed between the SPD and Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU)/Christian Social Union (CSU) alliance last week reflects too few of their aims and the party should reinvent itself in opposition.

Ahead of talks with his SPD members there yesterday, Schulz remained confident as said that he was "optimistic that majority will vote for talks with Merkel" and that the "SPD leadership is united behind exploratory result talks result".

Following is a list of key stages in the SPD's ratification process. Furthermore, delegates are free to vote their consciences, unconstrained by their regional parties. "Nearly everyone.at the top of the party is supporting this".

Ahead of a meeting of western SPD members in Dortmund on Monday, Ms Nahles said she would "ask them if we are a party that does politics for talk shows or to implement much of what we have fought for for years".

On Sunday, 600 SPD members from across the country would gather in the German city of Bonn and vote on the coalition issue. Thirty-two of the presidium members have already voted in favor of talks, six against.

In remarks seemingly meant to appease opponents of the blueprint in North Rhine-Westphalia, its conservative state premier Armin Laschet said on Monday it would be further refined.

The Jusos youth organization, the largest group to have announced its opposition, which represents all members aged below 35, will have 80 to 90 delegates.

EUR/USD lost about 40 pips on the back of news saying the Berlin's SPD section has rejected the proposal of coalition talks to form a Grand Coalition in Germany.
