Pay Attention For US CPI Inflation This Week
The Euro was under pressure after the European Central Bank cut its growth forecasts and failed to convince markets with its plan for stabilizing the Eurozone economy. ECB kept rates unchanged and announced a new liquidity operation to support lending. ECB's Nowotny said details of TLTRO will be announced in June.
Last Friday, the U.S. added 20K jobs in February, the weakest gain in more than a year. Other details of the report showed that the unemployment rate ticked down to 3.8% and the wage inflation, as measured by the average hourly earnings, rose 0.4% on a month.
Looking ahead, the Consumer Price Index and Retail Sales are in focus in the US.
One of the major indicators of economic conditions, US CPI Inflation, will be published on Tuesday. February’s Consumer Price Index is expected to come out at 1.6%, the same as the a previous number. Also, Core CPI inflation is expected to stay at 2.2%.
Core Retail Sales excluding auto and gas are expected to rise to 0.2% m/m from -1.8% fall in the previous number. A lower than expected reading should be taken as negative for the greenback.
If we look at the Eurozone area, watch out for the Eurozone Consumer Price Index on Friday. On the year-on-year basis, the Eurozone CPI is expected to stay at 1.5%.
