The Euro resumed yesterday’s recovery against the US Dollar after an uneventful set of economic data failed to offer new direction cues. German Unemployment fell 15,000 in December, beating expectations calling for a 1,000 decline. EUR/USD initially moved lower following the outcome but prices swiftly recovered as investors awaited the release of flash Eurozone CPI data.
That report proved little more eventful: the benchmark year-on-year inflation rate slowed to 0.8 percent as expected, offering little that would disrupt the ECB policy outlook status quo. With the day’s scheduled event risk in the rearview mirror, the single currency seems to have returned to the dynamic prevalent over the preceding 24 hours, correcting higher against the greenback having tumbled dramatically in the first two trading days of 2014.
