Thin macro data leaves the pair exposed to thin volumes
Today’s session is geared to be a quiet affair, with Germany and other major economies shuttered for the Easter long weekend, though we will be seeing Consumer Spending, Producer Prices, and Consumer Price Index figures for France at 06:45 GMT, followed by Italian CPI figures at 09:00 GMT.
The French CPI preliminary figure (EU Normalized) is expected at 1.5 percent versus the previous reading of 1.3 percent, while the initial Italian CPI (EU Normalized) is forecast at 2.1 percent, a big upswing from the previous period’s -0.5 percent contraction.
ECB to remain on hold
Next week will be bringing the European Union’s (EU) preliminary CPI figures for March, and traders will be looking for some positive news to push the European Central Bank (ECB) further down the path to fiscal tightening.
With a slowdown for economic growth on the cards for the first quarter of 2018, the ECB is hesitating at pulling the rate hike trigger, and many expect the ECB to remain on hold for a little while longer.
