Annual German inflation fell to a 3-year low in March, but the news didn’t stop the Euro from rallying about 25 pips against the US Dollar at the time of the release. Before the release of the country’s inflation rate, regions throughout Germany had already reported lower regional March inflation rates earlier this morning. Therefore, it is possible that the weaker German inflation rate was already expected by many traders by the time of the release.

Euro-zone inflation is likely the most important data release for Euro traders at the moment because of recent comments by various ECB members. Earlier this week, ECB’s Makuch warned that the central bank is preparing measures to avoid a deflationary environment. Therefore, lower inflation may push the ECB to take to take even looser monetary policy. That’s why the Euro rally on lower than expected German inflation may have caught many traders by surprise.
