EUR/USD focus on PMIs

After a brief spike to the 1.2600 handle post-FOMC minutes on Wednesday, spot came back to normality and traded mostly around the mid-1.2500s overnight, losing the grip ahead of the opening bell in Europe. In the data front, flash manufacturing and services PMI prints are due in Euroland ahead of the advance Consumer Confidence in the region for the month of November. After yesterday’s FOMC minutes, US CPI figures have now grown in importance, with consensus expecting consumer prices to have risen at annual pace of 1.6% during October, a tad lower than the 1.7% previous.
