MADRID (Reuters) - Foreign exchanges moves between the U.S. dollar and the euro are something to worry about and we will keep monitoring it, ECB policymaker Pablo Hernandez de Cos said on Monday.

“Obviously, this was and is a reason for concern, not because the ECB has an FX exchange objective, but simply because this is an important variable in determining the financial conditions of the area,” De Cos told a financial event.
