The US Dollar may extend gains vs the Euro if Eurozone inflation data misses estimates and boosts ECB rate cut bets and the prospect of the central bank reintroducing quantitative easing. Economic data out of the Eurozone has been tending to underperform relative to economists’ expectations. Last week, preliminary German GDP data showed that Europe’s largest economy likely contracted in the second quarter.

A week before that, German ZEW Survey Expectations came in at -44.1. The last time the data hovered at those levels in the past ten years was during the 2008 financial meltdown and the Eurozone debt crisis. If the “steam engine of Europe” continues to slow down, weaker demand will begin to ripple out into other member states and undermine regional price growth.

EURUSD Technical Analysis

EURUSD is hovering around the lower lip of 16-month descending resistance with a possible floor at 1.1023. A break below this support level with follow-through could trigger a selloff until it hits 1.0950. Looking ahead, Eurozone inflation data may push the pair lower, though the real catalysts for significant price moves will likely be the publication of the ECB and FOMC meeting minutes.
