Forex: Euro at Risk of Deeper Losses if CPI Data Drives ECB Easing Bets

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points:

  • Euro May See Added Selling Pressure if Eurozone CPI Falls Short of Forecasts
  • US Dollar Looks Toward Pickup in UofM Consumer Confidence to Fuel Gains
  • Yen Gains, Commodity Dollars Decline as Risk Aversion Sweeps Asian Markets

The preliminary set of January’s Eurozone CPI figures headlines the economic calendar in European hours. Expectations call for the headline year-on-year inflation rate to rise to 0.9 percent, reversing the drop to 0.8 percent recorded in December to match November’s print.

The analogous report from Germany disappointed as expected yesterday, driving the Euro lower amid speculation about a forthcoming expansion of ECB stimulus efforts. More of the same seems likely this time around. Indeed, the latest set of leading PMI data continued to stress that “deflationary forces are clearly a concernin many [Euro area] countries.” We remain short EURUSD.

Later in the day, the spotlight turns to the final revision of January’sUniversity of Michigan gauge of US Consumer Confidence. An upward revision is expected, which may help support Treasury yields as well as the US Dollar as traders look ahead to continued tapering of the Fed’s QE asset purchases. The analogous report from the Conference Board produced a better-than-expected sentiment reading earlier in the week, bolstering the case for an upbeat outcome.

The Japanese Yen outperformed on the back of safe-haven capital inflows while the sentiment-geared Australian, Canadian and New Zealand Dollars faced outsized selling pressure as risk aversion gripped financial markets in overnight trade. The MSCI Asia Pacific regional benchmark stock index fell 1.5 percent.
