How does the US dollar trade against the euro historically?

The euro had a strong start when it was introduced. In 1999 it was first adopted and used in electronic transfers only, but was finally launched in 2002 as a true currency. The EUR gave the USD a run for its money, and transactions between the two currencies stayed in a very tight range.

At some points the two were almost equal in value. That changed as the subprime mortgage crisis began to take hold of the US economy, causing the USD to lose 37% of its value against the EUR. Foreign exchange traders lost confidence in the USD, and many began trading on the EUR instead.

The value of the USD against the EUR reached an all time low at the start of 2008, when it was valued at 0.526 euro. It’s at this time that the economic crisis began to spread around the world and the value of the euro started to sink.

Further increasing the strength of the USD was the United States’ aggressive policies towards fighting its weakened economy. The ECB increased their prime rate to 1.5%, causing a further rise in its value as the EUR continued to drop. This trend in growth continued throughout 2010 and 2011 as the US market grew stronger, only interrupted by periodic falls against the EUR when the ECB made attempts to stabilize the Eurozone.
