The ECB chief met with Euro zone finance ministers on Monday but had nothing to say on the EUR/USD exchange rate apart from the usual line that he had no reason to doubt Bernanke or Geithner when they say that a strong USD is in their best interests. One would think that if he looked at his screen and saw the pair approaching 1.50 and showing no sign of backing off that at least a little more verbal support for the USD mightn’t go astray! Then again I am short and talking my position.
