Euro Price Chart, EUR/USD, FOMC, Eurozone GDP – Talking Points

  • EUR/USD could pare recent gains
  • Downtrend in the pair still in play
  • Eurozone GDP, CPI data on deck

EUR/USD may erase some of its recent upside movement if Eurozone CPI, GDP and unemployment data reinforce concerns about the region’s growth trajectory. Amid geopolitical oscillations and softer growth out of powerhouse economies – like Germany – data has been tending to underperform relative to expectations. It will therefore not be entirely surprising if these same fundamental factors lead to softer GDP and CPI prints.

Seasonally adjusted year-on-year GDP data is expected to show an advanced print of 1.1 percent, marginally weaker than the prior 1.2 percent outcome. Over the same time measure, core CPI – which excludes good with high price volatility – is expected to remain unchanged at one percent. Looking at the 5Y5Y Euro inflation swap forward, markets clearly have low expectations upside price growth in the Eurozone.

However, EUR/USD’s possible decline may be tempered by the release of US PMI and Core PCE data – the latter being a favorite of the Fed’s to use for calculating the policy outlook. If these indicators miss their estimates, it could magnify the US Dollar’s decline in an environment where it has been weakening amid a renewal in risk appetite and turn away from haven-linked assets.

EUR/USD Price Outlook

EUR/USD recently broke through a multi-week uptrend, but the pair’s decline – at least, for now – has been saved by the recent FOMC rate decision. However, upcoming economic data could erase some of EUR/USD’s gains. While the longer-term outlook supports a downside bias, a temporary respite in haven demand may erode upside pressure in the Greenback and strengthen the EUR/USD exchange rate.
