That is why it’s not falling as it should during the ‘crisis’.

For example, if the Chinese allowed the yuan to float freely, you’d see the Euro and US dollar quickly plunge in value, compared to the yuan.

In the meantime, what can the Euro plunge against? Not the US dollar, as it seems similarly risky, because of the weak US economy and high US national debt.

The US deficit is around 100% of its GDP – similar to countries in the EU. They are both sick currencies.

The prospect of removing Greece and Spain from the Euro SHOULD cause the Euro to rise. So the market is being quite rational in not seeing the Euro fall.

If the weak countries exit the Euro leaving behind a German anchored currency, the Euro would probably be more valuable. If the northern countries leave, a Euro anchored by France isn’t much to write home about and those lows from right after introduction would be a magnet. Trading where it is, I would say the market believes the probability of the first is greater than the latter. There are obviously other scenarios but those are likely the two poles pulling the value in each direction.

how much do you think the Fed will allow a strong-dollar ,
see the case of Switzerland – though Switzerland is – de facto – in the Eurozone and has no liberty about its currency, as 3/4 of its exports go in the Eurozone, but that`s another discussion
