EUR/USD Forecast: Down but (still) not out

Written By Adam Lemon | 2018-07-12 05:20:33 GMT

Also, US Producer Prices came out slightly above forecasts on Wednesday. While PPI is not a top-tier indicator, it bolstered the US Dollar ahead of the more critical Consumer Price Index (CPI) due today. The critical Core CPI YoY is projected to accelerate from 2.2% in May to 2.3% in June, strengthening the case for a rate hike in September.

The NATO Summit continues amid acrimony between the US and its European allies. A row over defense spending has triggered an emergency, unplanned session in Brussels. US President Donald Trump tied NATO spending to trade relations and markets may react. 

The European Central Bank will also have its say. A report that came out on Wednesday suggested that there is a controversy within the ranks of the ECB regarding the meaning of "through the summer of 2019". Some want a rate hike to come before September next year. The publication had a short-lived positive effect on the pair.

Speculation about the ECB's next moves will also be seen in the ECB Policy Meeting Accounts, which may even touch on trade. The rise of energy inflation may also gain traction.
