EUR/USD Rebound Vulnerable to Sticky U.S CPI- 1.0500 Support on Radar

EUR/USD Rebound Vulnerable to Sticky U.S CPI- 1.0500 Support on Radar

David Song, Shuyang Ren,

- U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) to Retain Slowest Pace of Growth Since 2009.

Trading the News: U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI)

The U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) may prop up the greenback and spark a near-term decline in EUR/USD should the inflation report highlight sticky price growth in the world’s largest economy.

What’s Expected:

Why Is This Event Important:

Despite signs of a slower recovery, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) may continue to prepare U.S. households and business for higher borrowing-costs as Chair Janet Yellen remains confident in achieving the 2% inflation target over the policy horizon.

The pickup in private-sector credit along with the improvement in household confidence may generate sticky price growth in the world’s largest economy, and the ebbing risk for disinflation may heighten the appeal of the greenback as the Fed remains well on course to normalize monetary policy.

Nevertheless, U.S. firms may ramp up on discounting amid the ongoing weakness in private-sector spending, and an unexpected slowdown in the CPI may further delay the Fed’s first rate-hike as the central bank struggles to deliver price stability.

February 2015 U.S. Consumer Price Index

EUR/USD Chart

The U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) held flat in February following an annualized 0.1% contraction the month prior amid stabilizing energy prices. At the same time, the core rate of inflation advanced an annualized 1.7 % after expanding 1.6% the month prior. Despite the better-than-expected prints, the Fed may look to further delay its normalization cycle as the central bank struggles to achieve the 2% target for inflation. The initial whipsaw-like market reaction was short-lived as EUR/USD struggled to hold above the 1.1100 handle, with the pair losing ground throughout the day to close at 1.0932.
