For the first time in 20 years, the US dollar is at its highest level against the euro

The dollar is at its highest level against the euro 

 The dollar hit a 20- time high on Monday, buoyed by hawkish commentary from US Federal Reserve System Chairman Jerome Powell, before falling back because the euro was supported by growing prospects of rate hikes from the European Central Bank


 The dollar indicator- which measures  the worth of the note against a handbasket of 6 contending currencies- scored109.48 points, an edge not seen since September 2002, before falling slightly at the top of Monday at the end of the trading session. 

The euro rose about0.3, but remained below the position of equality with the US currency at$0.9993. 

  an issue arises whether the US dollar will still rise or is on the verge of peaking, to start out another downcast trip analogous to the one it witnessed 20 times agone

The euro continues to collapse 

 Investors are beginning to believe that affectation is so high that it'll do so important damage to the frugality that the US Federal Reserve will have to stop raising interest rates soon, and indeed reverse the trend within the first quarter of coming time," said critic Fouad Razakzadeh at StoneX.. 

But Stephen Innes, an critic at SPI Management, says a answer within the euro is likely to follow deals as long as Nord Stream 1 doesn't renew pumping Russian gas to Europe. 


 Fears are inflamed more and more by  an entire halt to Russian gas exports to Europe, because the French government spoke at the end of last week of the" possibility" of cutting inventories. 


" How far can the deterioration of the euro go? It presumably depends on Russia's desire to aggravate the profitable war with Europe," says critic Jane Foley at the fiscal services company Rabobank. easy". 


 Given the weak growth within the  eurozone, the ecu Central Bank can raise interest rates, but with difficulty,  so as  to combat affectation, which reached5.8 in June in France and7.6 in Germany, consistent with numbers published on Wednesday morning. 

The dollar continues to dominate 

 The pen refocused out that dollars pessimists ignore the deep and solid foundations of dollar dominance, similar because the size of the American frugality, the deep and unequaled private fiscal requests and therefore the strong protection of property rights in the United States, because America is far more willing than the European Union, China or Japan to act as a haven Eventually, for advancing in global fiscal heads, the hierarchical network structure deeply bedded within the global financial and fiscal system. 

 He said that no other country enjoys these advantages, and no other currency is willing to fill these places, the ecu Union is the largest frugality in the world, but the eurozone is neither a fiscal nor political union, and this makes it delicate to maneuver others that they can calculate on the euro at times. still, China still lacks deep and liquid private fiscal requests, doesn't allow free overflows of capital, and its autocrats have shown no sign whatsoever that  they're going to accept the necessary profitable- political trade- offs of the renminbi. To challenge the dollars , or indeed the euro. 


 Kopilovich concluded his composition that there may come each day when the dollars loses its central part because the dominant global reserve currency, but it is not moment, but not indeed this decade, and it's veritably likely not this century, and it will not come possible until the European Union becomes a real fiscal and political union, Or until China develops an responsible, liberal government and more advanced private fiscal requests that ultimately accepts free movement of capital overflows, neither of those scripts feel likely to be soon.
