European Joint Float Agreement

European monetary system established in April 1972 by the EC members: West Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg. Great Britain, Ireland, and Denmark were admitted by January 1973. The agreement allowed the member currencies to move within a 2.25 percent fluctuation band (nicknamed the snake). As a joint group, the agreement allowed these currencies to gyrate within a 4.5 percent band (nicknamed the tunnel). The entire agreement was known as the snake in the tunnel.
