European and US currency markets have been struggling to recover from the global financial crisis.
But with the European Central Bank (ECB) and the US Federal Reserve (Fed) expected to hike interest rates, the currency is still losing ground.
A Reuters poll found that a whopping 78% of Americans don’t see the euro as a safe haven in the global economy.
But for those who do, the dollar is gaining ground.

The euro is being held back by two factors.
Firstly, the ECB is still trying to keep its bond-buying program running, despite a recent cut to its key lending rate to the single currency.
And secondly, the EU has been forced to maintain its debt-laden policies for fear that the country will face a debt crisis if it doesn’t raise the debt ceiling.
In an interview with Bloomberg News, ECB President Mario Draghi said that if the ECB doesn’t do what it can to keep interest rates on hold and keep inflation stable, the eurozone’s economy will become a “disaster”.
In addition, the euro’s value is still down a significant amount compared to other currencies.
The pound has risen sharply in recent weeks.
This has pushed the value of the euro up against the US dollar, and the euro against the Japanese yen.
The euro’s recent rise was sparked by fears that the ECB will try to raise interest rates and trigger another round of quantitative easing, a policy that would raise interest-bearing debt.
The central bank is hoping to do this by cutting its key interest rate to 0.25%, which it expects to do by the end of the year.
This would allow it to buy up government bonds in an attempt to raise inflation, which has pushed inflation to a record high of over 4%.
However, economists say this could not happen if the euro is seen as a hedge against a potential collapse in the value or price of the currency.
Economists say that, if the EU’s bond-swap programme were to end, the economy would become even more vulnerable to a collapse in its currency.
In other words, the value and price of one euro would fall much faster than one yen.
Economist Jean-Luc de Jager from Bank of America Merrill Lynch believes that if rates are cut, then this would have a significant impact on the eurozone.
He said that the euro would lose about half its value over the next three years.
“If the euro collapses, it would mean the eurozone would be a bigger basket of goods and services,” he said.
“So if it collapses, the basket of services would be smaller, and therefore the eurozone has less bargaining power.”
In other words: the EU is going to have to spend much more if it wants to maintain the euro.
A second concern for the euro has been the impact of Brexit.
The UK is set to leave the EU in March 2019, which will have a huge impact on Europe.
The British vote is seen by many as a sign that the EU will soon have to act on a new set of priorities for the eurozone that are in contrast to the past.
The EU’s policy towards the UK has been to offer financial assistance, but to date this has not worked out as well.
The British vote also has a negative impact on other eurozone economies.
For example, the Eurozone is not expected to recover its trade deficit with the UK.
The currency markets were already experiencing a problem when the ECB raised its key rate to zero.
As a result, the price of sterling fell to a new low of £1.26 against the euro on Monday.
But since then, sterling has recovered to a more normal level, with the euro falling to its lowest level since February.
The reason for this is that the British decision to leave Europe has forced the ECB to continue its bond buying programme, and thus it has created a new market for the UK’s debt.
This is creating an incentive for the Bank of England to increase its bond purchases.
But there are some concerns.
The Bank of Japan (BoJ) said that it expects the Japanese economy to contract by 2% in 2018.
This means that the BoJ could see the yen rise, pushing down the value in the currency markets.
The BoJ has been increasing its bond buyback programme.
In the meantime, the Bank is expected to raise its interest rate again in September.
However, it has not yet announced whether it will do so.
If it does, it will have to do so at a higher interest rate than it did in August.
The ECB is worried about the impact that the Brexit vote will have on the economy.
This worries the Bank.
“The economy will be weaker if the UK leaves the EU,” Draghi told Bloomberg News.
The economy is expected not to get a huge boost from the Brexit decision, as many of its members are reluctant to join the European Union.
However, this may change if the United Kingdom decides
