Euro Risks From Cyprus: Pro

The banking crisis in Cyprus makes the euro more susceptible to future shocks, Citigroup Global Head of G10 FX Strategy Steven Englander said Monday.

On CNBC's "Fast Money," he said that he didn't think the euro would slide much farther than $1.30, its 200-day moving average.

"I don't think it's going to go that much lower. It's already taken a lot of pain," he said. "For the rest of Europe, it's really not that important."

However, Englander noted a risk for the euro going forward, saying that the currency would be "

more susceptible to any kind of negative shock."

When consumers and depositors see trouble for the euro in the future, he added, their first thought is to cash out their bank accounts.

"And if you're a policymaker, the first thing you're going to ask is, 'When should the gates get shut?'"
