Get more insight from the 13 December Europe Forex Market Update, as it is evident that the Fed announcement will overshadow the European calendar, which has German inflation at the start of the session as well as U.K. labour market data.

The Fed announcement will overshadow the European calendar, which has German inflation at the start of the session as well as U.K. labour market data and Eurozone production and employment numbers.
More importantly, perhaps, the German rate is above the Eurozone rate and as there hasn’t been much progress with regard to economic convergence since the crisis, stronger countries such as Germany may have to be forced to live with a period of above-target inflation to give the weaker countries more time to catch up.
Either way, with wage growth still weak Draghi still has something to argue with as he defends his ongoing asset purchases, although with companies running into capacity constraints today’s numbers will add to pressure from Germany to commit to an end date for QE.
