EURO FUNDAMENTAL BACKDROP

The euro has been capitating off the weaker than expected US CPI earlier this week despite weakening slightly both yesterday and today. Markets are seemingly expecting the Federal Reserve to have reached its hiking cycle peak and have since ‘dovishly’ repriced expectations through to December 2024. This may be an overreaction as inflation remains sticky and after Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s recent comments to maintain elevated interest rates, the roughly 91bps of cumulative rate cuts by the end of 2024 could be amplified. US PPI did encourage further disinflation being a leading indicator but Fed officials stay cautious.

From a euro area perspective, the EU commission stated that the region will avoid a technical recession but recent economic data has shown extremely poor statistics including yesterday’s industrial production.

The day ahead will be dominated by central bank speakers with the European Central Bank’s (ECB) President Christine Lagarde included (see economic calendar below). It will be interesting to see how Fed speakers respond to the recent inflation and retail sales reports. Considering the US and UK have released their inflation statistics, the euro report scheduled for tomorrow could bring the euro down from recent highs if actual data fall in line with estimates.
