On Monday, the euro cost $1,1921 vs. $1,1951 after the North American session on September 22. The dollar exchange rate against the Japanese national currency climbed by 0.2% to 112.22 yen. The value of the euro paired with the yen is stable - 133.82 yen. Coupled with the pound sterling, the euro lost 0.5%, the Canadian dollar - 0.3%.

The CDU/CSU bloc has won the elections to the Bundestag, having scored 33% of the vote. However, according to preliminary estimates, CDU/CSU MPs will take 246 out of 709 seats, having thus lost  65 seats in comparison with the previous elections.
