It has been a busy start to the week for EUR/USD, which gained 100 points earlier in today but has given up almost all of these gains. In the North American session, EUR/USD is trading at 1.0384.

German CPI Projected To Decline

Inflation is running at a double-digit clip in the Eurozone and Germany, and the European Central Bank is keeping a careful eye on Tuesday’s German CPI for November, with a consensus of -0.2%, compared with a gain of 0.9% in October. Could this be the long-sought peak in inflation? If so, it would allow the ECB to ease up on its pace of rate hikes. The ECB was late getting into the hiking game, as president Christine Lagarde and others clearly underestimated the stickiness of inflation, which has hit 10.4% in Germany and 10.7% in the Eurozone.

The ECB has been aggressive and raised rates by 75 basis points in October, but the main deposit rate is at a relatively low 2%. The ECB has moved away from forward guidance and is relying instead on a meeting-by-meeting, data-driven approach. The markets have priced in a 50-bp increase at the Dec. 12 meeting, but the release of German CPI on Tuesday and Eurozone CPI on Wednesday could change expectations.

After a short trading week in the U.S. due to the Thanksgiving holiday, the markets will have plenty of U.S. events to digest this week. The U.S. will release GDP for Q3 and the Core PCE Price Index, the Fed’s preferred inflation indicator. The key release of the week is nonfarm payrolls on Friday, which could have a major impact on what the Fed does at the Dec. 14 meeting. Currently, the likelihood of a 50-bp hike is about 75%, versus 25% for a larger 75-bp increase. Investors are viewing a 50-point move as a dovish pivot, which has been putting pressure on the U.S. dollar. Still, even a 50-bp hike would set a record for yearly rate hikes of 4.25%.
