EUR/USD Risks Larger Pullback as U. of Michigan Confidence Rebounds

EUR/USD Risks Larger Pullback as U. of Michigan Confidence Rebounds

EUR/USD Risks Pullback U of Michigan Confidence Rebounds

- U. of Michigan Confidence to Improve for Second Time in 2014.

- Household Sentiment Survey Has Held Above 80.0 Since November.

Trading the News: U. of Michigan Confidence

A rebound in the U. of Michigan Confidence survey may spur a larger pullback in the EUR/USD as it raises the outlook for the U.S. economy.

Why Is This Event Important:

Indeed, positive developments coming out of the world’s largest economy may put increased pressure on the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) to normalize monetary policy sooner rather than later, but it seems as though Fed Chair Janet Yellen remains reluctant to move away from the zero-interest rate policy as the central bank head continues to highlight the ongoing slack in the real economy.

The resilience in private sector consumption along with the pickup in consumer credit may generate a meaningful rebound in household sentiment, and an upbeat print may generate a bullish reaction in the USD as it limits the Fed’s scope to retain its highly accommodative policy stance for an extended period of time.

However, subdued wage growth paired with the persistent slack in the real economy may spark a further downturn in consumer confidence, and a dismal development may heighten the bearish sentiment surrounding the greenback as the FOMC retains a rather cautious outlook for the region.

EUR/USD Chart

The University of Michigan Confidence survey missed estimates last month to come in at 79.0 vs. 82.0 as surveyed by economists. The figure has been on the general decline since hitting a high over summer not seen since 2007. February’s reading led to a slight uptick in the EUR/USD, but small move did not hold into the close.
