Web Extra: Euro To Fall Much Further?

Friday, 18 Jun 2010 | 6:07 PM ET

Earlier in the week BNP Paribas took down its euro forecast, saying they're convinced "the currency will have to remain weaker for longer."

How much weaker and for how long?

Essentially they said the euro should trade at parity with the dollar (1 USD = 1 EUR) by early next near.

”The (euro) will “drift” to $0.97 U.S. cents in the third quarter of 2011 and end the year at parity as “a weak euro will help Europe generate the required income to deal with the financial consequences of the crisis,” BNP said in a note to clients.

It’s something Jon Najarian and other Fast Money traders have been predicting for some time.
