EUR/USD Ticks Higher on Euro-Zone Inflation Uptick, ECB Key

EUR/USD Ticks Higher on Euro-Zone Inflation Uptick, ECB Key

Nick Cawley, Strategist

Talking Points

- EUR/USD looking to re-coup recent losses.

- Will expectation beating inflation data allow ECB President Mario Draghi some wiggle room at next week’s meeting?

EUR/USD moved slightly higher on Thursday after the latest Euro-Zone inflation readings came in higher than expected. According to Eurostat preliminary readings, core inflation remained unchanged in August at 1.3%, beating expectations of 1.2%, while the annual reading rose to 1.5%, beating forecasts of 1.4% and July’s 1.3%.

ECB President Mario Draghi will breathe a sigh of relief, at least in the short-term, at the latest move higher in prices and will likely point to this at next week’s monetary policy meeting. Draghi has remained firm that there must be a sustained improvement in inflation in the Euro-Zone before he moves to tighten monetary policy. Expectations have been building in the last few weeks that Draghi will use the September meeting to announce a framework of when the central bank will begin to pare back its EUR60 billion a month quantitative easing program.
