EUR/USD now looks to EMU’s CPI

With the US GDP and the FOMC meeting in the rear mirror, market participants will now turn their attention to tomorrow’s critical advanced inflation figures in the euro area. Previous estimates expects consumer prices to have risen at an annual pace of 0.4% during October, while core prices are expected at 0.8% YoY. In the meantime, spot managed to bounce off the mid-1.2500s area posted in the aftermath of the FOMC meeting to the boundaries of 1.2640, although the recovery lost legs afterwards. In the opinion of Camilla Sutton, Chief FX Strategist at Scotiabank, “We expect EUR to trend lower over time, holding a 2014 year end of 1.25 and a 2016 year-end target of 1.21”.
