    What's going up there in the US? The exchange rate to EUR is just terrible...
    Eurozone economy struggling badly, I do not get how it is possible that dollar is losing and losing and losing... this actually pretty much hurts earnings of all IM people from Europe, that target US market, what is the majority.

    Is your economy going to collapse or what?

    On the BBC this morning they were talking about the US defaulting on its debt which if it happened would plunge the world into another recession.

    Not likely to happen but the scare is there.

    This is nothing. The US$ isn't even as low as it was in January 2013. Only in May 2011 the US$ was 1200 points weaker than now, which means: plenty of room for the Dollar to fall even more (Euro becoming stronger) and it would still be "normal". Right now at 1.36 EURUSD on my charts. Nothing to see here.

    If the Euro goes higher: buy stuff on US ebay and sell it on European ebay (currency arbitrage), but only if the shipping costs don't eat up the margin.
