The euro is going to parity with the dollar whether Le Pen wins or not

The concern in Europe is that the value of the euro is going to decrease regardless of the outcome of the French election. Because of the higher interest rates in the United States, the value of the U.S dollar will continue to grow overtime while the euro will not. After Donald Trump won the United States election, many experts predicted that there would be parity between the dollar and euro in a short period of time. The euro is currently worth $1.06.

  • prior to the French election, the euro was presumed to be about to rise, just a bit, presuming a Le Pen loss.
  • Unfortunately, this was also predicted to be a short-lived scenario, according to the money management arm of Deutsche Bank.

“However, the key takeaway is simple; the euro is headed to parity with the dollar.”
