EUR/USD: the euro is recovering

Current trend, EUR showed a moderate increase against USD on Monday, slightly recovering after a steady decline at the end of the previous trading week.

Eurozone inflation data released on Monday was weak. In November, the Core Consumer Price Index was –0.3%, and YoY it remained at around 1.0%. The overall CPI in November was –0.2%, and YoY the indicator fell from 2.0% to 1.9%, having fallen below the target level for the first time since May 2018. However, these data did not influence the market much, since investors focused their attention on the next meeting of the US Fed.

Today, market participants are focused on a block of statistics on Germany IFO business optimism and business expectations. With the opening of the US session, the focus will shift to data on housing starts and building permits in the US in November.
