Slowing U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) to Fuel EUR/USD Breakout

Slowing U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) to Fuel EUR/USD Breakout

David Song, Strategist

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

Updates to the U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) may fuel the recent breakout in EUR/USD as the headline reading is projected to slow to 1.9% from 2.2% per annum in November.

Signs of easing price pressures may encourage the Federal Reserve to retain the current policy at the next interest rate decision on January 30 as officials see ‘growth moderating ahead, and a marked slowdown in the CPI may put pressure on the central bank to conclude its hiking-cycle ahead of schedule as the uncertainty surrounding fiscal policy clouds the economic outlook.

In turn, a dismal development may spark a bearish reaction in the U.S. dollar as the Federal Reserve shows a greater willingness to adopt a wait-and-see approach in 2019, but stickiness in the core rate of inflation may ultimately spur a mixed reaction as the reading is expected to hold steady at 2.2% for the second month.

The U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) narrowed to 2.2% from 2.5% per annum in October, while the core rate of inflation climbed to 2.2% from 2.1% during the same period. The weakness in the headline reading was larger driven by a 2.2% decline in energy prices, with transportation costs also slipping 0.8%, while prices for medical care increased 0.4% after climbing 0.2% in October.

The U.S. dollar struggled to hold its ground following the mixed batch of data, with EUR/USD climbing back above the 1.1350 region to close the day at 1.1368. Review the DailyFX Advanced Guide for Trading the News to learn our 8 step strategy.
