Keep up to date with all key economic data and event releases via the DailyFX Economic Calendar

The latest EU and German sentiment indicators missed already lowly expectations and paint a very negative picture for the single-block and the single-currency, and it may get worse. The German headline reading is the weakest since May 2010 and the expectations reading is at the lowest level since December 2011.

According to ZEW President Professor Achim Wambach, the German data shows reveals “The ZEW Indicator of Economic Sentiment points to a significant deterioration in the outlook for the German economy. The most recent escalation in the trade dispute between the US and China, the risk of competitive devaluations, and the increased likelihood of a no-deal Brexit place additional pressure on the already weak economic growth. This will most likely put a further strain on the development of German exports and industrial production”.

EURUSD Price Under Pressure After EU/German Sentiment Crashes

The provisional look at German Q2 GDP is released Wednesday and is expected to show the economy contracting on a q/q and a y/y basis. The daily EURUSD chart continues to trade around 1.1200 but with weak German data expected tomorrow and with Brexit still heading towards a no-deal, the single currency will remain capped and may re-test the recent lows.
