The euro gained versus the dollar and yen as German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the European Union remains committed to its shared currency and the outlook for German growth is “very positive.”
“We don’t have a euro problem in Europe,” Merkel said today. “We have more of a debt problem. Financial markets doubt whether some EU states can manage their debt in the long-term.” Germany is committed to the euro, which is stable, she said.
The euro has gained 2.4% this year, versus a 5.4% drop by the dollar and a 5.5% decline for the yen.
