Sticky Euro-Zone CPI to Fuel EUR/USD Rebound

Sticky Euro-Zone CPI to Fuel EUR/USD Rebound

David Song, Shuyang Ren,

- Euro-Zone Consumer Price Index (CPI) to Hold Flat in September.

Trading the News: Euro-Zone Consumer Price Index (CPI)

A slowdown in the Euro-Zone’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) may drag on the Euro and spark a short-term decline in EUR/USD as it puts increased pressure on the European Central Bank (ECB) to further embark on its easing cycle.

What’s Expected:

Why Is This Event Important:

Even though the ECB keeps the door open to expand the scope as well as the duration of its quantitative easing (QE) program, stickiness in the core rate of inflation may encourage the Governing Council to endorse a wait-and-see approach at the October 22 as central bank President Mario Draghi anticipates price growth to pick up towards the end of the year.

Expectations: Bearish Argument/Scenario




Consumer Confidence (SEP A)



Retail Sales (MoM) (JUL)



Producer Price Index (YoY) (JUL)



Lower input costs paired with the ongoing slack in private-sector consumption may encourage European firms to offer discounted prices, and a dismal CPI print may spur a bearish reaction in the Euro as it fuels speculation for additional monetary support.

Risk: Bullish Argument/Scenario




Business Climate Indicator (SEP)



Employment (QoQ) (2Q)



Gross Domestic Product s.a. (QoQ) (2Q P)



However, improved confidence accompanied by the stronger-than-expected GDP figures may foster a stronger-than-expected inflation report, and sticky price growth in the euro-area may keep the ECB on the sidelines throughout 2015 as the central bank continues to assess the impact of its non-standard measures.

  • Even though the deviation paths for monetary policy favors a long-term bearish outlook for EUR/USD, the pair may trade on a firmer footing over the near-term as market participants treat the Euro as a ‘funding-currency,’ while the Relative Strength Index (RSI) retains the bullish formation carried over from March.
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows the retail crowd remains net-short EUR/USD since March 9, but the ratio remains off of recent extremes as it sits at –1.49, with 40% of traders long.
  • Interim Resistance: 1.1760 (61.8% retracement) to 1.1810 (38.2% retracement)
  • Interim Support: Interim Support: 1.0790 (50% expansion) to 1.0800 (23.6% expansion)

August 2015 Euro-Zone Consumer Price Index (CPI)


The Euro-Zone’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) beat market expectations as the headline reading increased another 0.2% in August, while the core rate of inflation grew 1.0% amid forecasts for a 0.9% clip. Despite the better-than-expected prints, the European Central Bank (ECB) may have little choice but to further embark on its cycle as the resilience in the Euro exchange rate accompanied by weaker energy prices undermines the central bank’s scope to achieve its one and only mandate for price stability. Nevertheless, the market reaction was largely limited, with EUR/USD edging below the 1.1200 handle following the release, but the pair consolidated throughout the North American trade to end the day at 1.1208.
