Au fil d’une longue période de force, le puissant dollar américain (USD) a laissé dans son sillage une myriade de devises affaiblies. L’euro en fait partie. Au cours des quatre derniers trimestres, il a déprécié de près de 9 %. La croissance économique a ralenti et la récession de certains pays a constitué un risque. Les tensions commerciales se sont intensifiées. Les prévisions de croissance ont été revues à la baisse et les marchés ont écarté la possibilité d’une normalisation des taux d’intérêt pratiqués par les banques centrales en 2019, et peut-être même en 2020. Malgré ces nuages noirs, l’euro pourrait-il être sur le point de s’apprécier ?

The European Banking Authority (EBA) published today the results of its assessment of the applicability and suitability of EU law to crypto-assets. Typically, crypto-asset activities do not constitute regulated services within the scope of EU banking, payments and electronic money law, and risks exist for consumers that are not addressed at the EU level. Crypto-asset activities may also give rise to other risks, including money laundering. In light of these issues, the EBA recommends that the European Commission carry out further analysis to determine the appropriate EU-level response. The EBA also identifies a number of actions that it will take in 2019 to enhance the monitoring of financial institutions' crypto-asset activities and consumer-facing disclosure practices.
