Eurozone CPI Talking Points:

  • Eurozone Core CPI for August beats estimates at 1.6%
  • Energy Sector shows the largest increase since July
  • EUR/USD edges above 1.180

The release of the data combined with a better than expected unemployment data from Germany, Europe’s largest economy, EUR/USD edged higher, above the key psychological level of 1.180 which continues to hold as support for the imminent move.
