EURUSD Retreat After European Monetary Union CPI Data


EURUSD retreat today after a seven day rally that drove the price to seven week highs. Speculation that the Federal Reserve will proceed with an interest rate cut in the next policy meeting has pressured the US dollar.

Earlier today the European Monetary Union Consumer Price Index came in at 1.2% in line with forecasts in February. The Producer Price Index came in at 0.4%, below the expectations of 0.5% in January. The European Monetary Union Unemployment Rate registered at 7.4% in January in line with market consensus.

US President Donald Trump in a tweet noted that the RBA lowered its interest rates to 0.5% from 0.75% to battle the economic impact amid the coronavirus outbreak and called upon the Federal Reserve to make a significant interest rate cut.
