Euro Breaking News: EU CPI On the Rise, Core at 2.3% While Headline Hits 5.1%

Recommended Posts


  • Core and Headline EU inflation heats up!
  • ECB hawkish pressure increases.
  • IG Client Sentiment: Bullish.



EU core and headline inflation prints beat estimates (see economic calendar below) with Italian data following suit. The Euro has been appreciating against the greenback this week with strong labour, growth and now inflation statistics. Inflation is likely to remain elevated with rising oil and gas prices plaguing the region.

German and French headline inflation figures earlier this week set the scene for higher EU inflation this morning adding to hawkish pressure on the ECB for tomorrow’s interest rate decision. This being said, the ECB is unlikely to change its stance on inflation dissipating later in the year but questions around mounting inflationary pressures are bound to increase.

Initial reaction post-CPI has been positive for the Euro as expected retesting the 1.1300 psychological level. A break above this key area of confluence is unlikely to warrant any material change as markets wait patiently for the ECB meeting tomorrow. A hawkish disappointment is likely and could see further downside to subsequent support zones.

Resistance levels:

  • 1.1300

Support levels:

  • 1.1186
  • 1.1100


IGCS shows retail traders are currently long on EUR/USD, with 55% of traders currently holding long positions (as of this writing). At DailyFX we typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment but recent changes in net long and short positions respectively, results in an upside bias.

    • The crypto market appears to be showing signs of recovery, with significant improvements in the Sharpe Ratios of Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum, according to an article published on Friday.  The Sharpe Ratio, a measure used to understand the return of an investment compared to its risk, has seen a notable increase for both cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin's Sharpe Ratio has risen from -2.4 to 0.68, while Ethereum and BGB have also experienced a similar uptrend. This change signifies higher returns at lower risk, which is expected to attract more investors to the crypto market. In addition to the improved Sharpe Ratios, increased network activity and trading volume as shown on CEXs like Bitget, Binance, and a few DEXs are suggesting a healthier market state. The current trading prices of Bitcoin, reflect this overall positive market sentiment. As of Friday, Bitcoin was trading at $27,069.73, BGB at $0.454 and Ethereum at $1,677.89. These developments are significant as they indicate reduced risk in the crypto market. The increase in the Sharpe Ratios for Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum suggests that these cryptocurrencies are becoming less risky investments, which could potentially lead to an influx of new investors into the market.  Could this rise in Sharpe Ratios coupled with increased network activity and trading volume point towards a recovering and less risky crypto market?
