Shortly before the end of the year, the euro was lacking momentum. No major economic data was released in the euro zone or the US. Many retailers have already closed their books.

The euro is expected to end the year with significant price drops. At the beginning of January it was quoted above $ 1.22. The main reason for the downturn is the different monetary policy stance in the USA and the euro zone. The US Federal Reserve is taking a more determined approach to exiting its loose monetary policy. A first rate hike is expected in mid-2022. The ECB has not yet signaled an interest rate hike for the coming year./he
