Euro Falls to 6-Month Low

The euro fell below $1.37 this morning to match a six-month low on growing speculation that the European Central Bank will reduce interest rates in the face of declining growth.

“We’ve reached a turning point,” said Simon Derrick, at Bank of New York Mellon in London. “There should be a shift in demand for the euro with a shift in the monetary-policy stance. Should the euro be offered? Absolutely.” The currency may fall as low as the high $1.20s, he said.
