The euro hit a new record against the unravelling dollar, surging to 1.3549, with some analysts seeing 1.40 dollars as a potential trigger level for European Central Bank intervention.
The single European currency jumped to its new record at mid-morning before slipping back to 1.3529, against 1.3506 late Thursday in New York.
Against the yen the dollar was trading at 103.54, down from 103.61 on Thursday.
Trading was quiet ahead of the Christmas holiday.
“The euro/dollar rate has moved to a new life-time high as underlying lack of enthusiasm for the dollar remains firmly intact,” said Daragh Maher, currency analyst at CALYON.
After reaching record lows against the euro Thursday, the dollar plunged still further on Friday after comments by Dutch Finance Minister Gerrit Zalm that the euro continued to trade within an acceptable range against the US currency.
In an interview with the French newspaper La Croix, Zalm, whose country currently chairs the EU presidency, said: “If one remembers that the euro, when launched, was worth about 1.20 dollars, the rise of the European currency is no more than 10 percent. So the euro is moving within a range which is still acceptable.”
Somebody had way too much time…
‘If you hear that in one of the towns, there are men who are telling people to go and worship other gods, it is your duty to look into the matter and examine it.’
‘If it is proved and confirmed, you must put the inhabitants of that town to the sword.’
‘You must lay the town under the curse of destruction, the town and everything in it.’
‘You must pile up all its loot in the public square and burn the town and all its loot.”
‘That town is to be a ruin for all time, and never rebuilt.”
