Is the euro Collapsing?

Jump to last reply

Several years ago, we had a poster on this boad who week after week, I won't mention her name because posts on this board should never get personal, predicted the crash of the US dollar against the euro. I was prepaying some hotel reservations today and was shocked when I checked oe.com that the euro has slipped to $1.08. So I thought we might start a thread, all in good fun of course,as to just when the euro and USD will be trading at par. I wonder if you can make a wager in Vegas on this...I'll take May 1.
In all seriousness, I decided to book the hotel room in USD (the hotel is in euroland) since it is fully refundable and if the euro falls further I can cancel and re-book and the refund would be in USD...make a little money on the transaction.

Incidentally, the GBP is down to around $1.50...talk of the collapse of the USD seems a bit premature, eh.
