As the President of the United States Donald trump takes aim at Turkey, the Euro came under cross fire. The Turkish Lira fell to a record low last Friday amid escalating tensions in connection with the detention of American pastor with the trump ordering some fares on Turkish metals twice.

The carnage quickly spread from developing to developed markets, the Euro fell by as much as 1.2 PC to a minimum in more than a year, extending the fall caused the previously “financial times” reported that the European Central Bank expressed concern about European banks ‘ exposure to Turkey.

The ban on quick resolution of us-Turkish hostility, the single Currency will continue to suffer amid fears about the vulnerability of European financial institutions, according to Shahab Jalinoos, head of the international group credit Suisse AG for Forex trading strategies.

“While the market suspects in the European banking sector has exposure, it will put pressure on the Euro, even if it is difficult to assess,” said Jalinoos. “It will be sold on rallies, if Turkey suddenly cleared up, especially because the market knows that the Euro has its own Italy budget risk still ahead.”

The Euro fell as low as $1.1395 last Friday, and now about 5pc this year against the dollar. Jalinoos has his sights set on the Euro 200-week moving average at $1.1367 as the next item to look at.

He said that the level acted as resistance in the second half of 2016. The U.S. dollar rose against almost all major and emerging market currencies last Friday, emphasizing the attractiveness is increasing it is rather frustration for the President of the United States.

Among G-10 currencies, the biggest losses of the Euro against the yen, dollar and Swiss franc. “Turbulence in emerging markets related side-from the Turkish assets creates fear in the market,” says brad, Bechtel, group managing Director Jeffries.

“The only currency in this environment, the dollar, the Swiss franc and the yen.”

Meanwhile, the European Central Bank increasingly concerned about the impact of Eurozone banks in Turkey, according to the financial times.
