Eurozone Core Inflation Rate (YoY) came in at 1.6%, beating estimates of 1.5% as inflationary pressures continue to mount.

With policy makers maintaining a dovish stance, the European Central Bank (ECB) has suggested that higher inflation is ‘transitory’ and will likely subside once global economies have returned to Pre-Covid activities.

While the Energy sector showed the highest annual rate increase from 14.3% in July to 15.4% in August, supply constraints in the oil and gas industry combined with the spread of the Delta variant have dampened sentiment, raising concerns that the increasing pace at which global economies are recovering from the pandemic may have additional long-term consequences if low interest rates remain for the foreseeable future.

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.
