The euro has fallen against the dollar after disappointing French and German economic surveys dismayed the markets.
Fair enough there was a bit of a drop on Friday the “14 December 2018″, but the same could have been said the week before, and by Monday the EUR € was back up and is currently trading stronger compared to the $ than before that.
And looking at the GBP £, there was no such drop …
… okay, lets look at the Australian Dollar for good measurement …
… no, sorry. I can’t see it.
Lets look at the USD $ compared to the AUD …
… oh look, the same ‘spike’ in the USD vs AUD! Did the French protest drive down the Australian Dollar with the Euro?
Or, maybe, just maybe, the USD jumped up a little bit on Friday the 14th of December?
But did anything at all happen on the 14th of December that might possibly have caused people valuing the US economy a little bit better?

We’ve tried, and failed – so far at least, to find a way to leave the European Union, which for our friends in Brussels has served as proof of what a lame duck nation we are.
German satirical programme Heute Show has cemented the stance of our continental cousins as they named the UK its ‘Golden Dumbass of the Year’ describing the nation as ‘the most confused island in the world’ and comparing Brexit to a sickness.
