EUR price, Eurozone PMIs and Ifo Index:

  • The Eurozone purchasing managers’ indexes and the German Ifo Index all came in below forecast levels in May but there was little response in the Euro.
  • The results of the European Parliament elections Sunday are the next hurdle for Euro traders.

Eurozone PMIs, Ifo Index disappoint

The purchasing managers’ indexes for the Eurozone and the Ifo Index for Germany all came in lower than economists had predicted in May but there was little response in EURUSD or the Euro against other major currencies. The results in full are in the following table:

In response, EURUSD slipped lower but the response was muted as traders wait for the results of European Parliament elections due Sunday.
