The decision not to increase US rates was largely predictable, macro data not exciting and downward inflation rate. So everything on expectations.
So the strong appreciation of the euro is justified if the euro economy does not enjoy good health?
Trump's statements against the German surplus, cause of the weakness of the euro, have reached the goal of strengthening the euro, which partially resizes the German surplus and gives the US economy a leverage advantage not more than 1.07.

Even here the inflation targets are far off and we believe than at the distance the US dollar will return winner.
