Forex: German January CPI Fell More than Expected; EURUSD Bearish

Forex: German January CPI Fell More than Expected; EURUSD Bearish

Renee Mu, Currency Analyst

THE TAKEAWAY: [German Consumer Price Index dropped 0.5% in January] > [Fundamental problems in Euro-zone make it harder for companies to raise commodity prices] > [EURUSD Bearish]

German preliminary Consumer Price Index in January decreased 0.5 percent following an increase in last month according to a report released by Germany’s Federal Statistics office in Wiesbaden today. The consensus forecast of economists surveyed by Bloomberg News had called for 0.4 percent drop in January. On a yearly basis, German inflation grew 1.7 percent in this month, falling short of expectations for an increase of 2.0 percent.

The low-than-expected inflation readings indicate that the euro area still faces fundamental problems such as the ongoing debt crisis and thus it is a long way for the Euro-area to recovery. According to the IMF, the Europe economy will shrink by 0.2 percent in 2013. Cautions lie in the gap between financial-market optimism and economy reality which may pull the euro back from its current peak.
