The EU will update the consumer price index. Analysts expect a result of 0.7%. A lower reading will have a negative impact on the EUR.

13:30 GMT

The US releases its core retail sales index. Analysts expect the sales to increase by 0.4%. If the result is lower, the USD may decline.

Technical analysis


Germany released a preliminary estimate of its Q3 GDP yesterday. Instead of falling by 0.1%, the indicator increased by 0.1%. We believe that this is the first signal of the end of recession in Germany. The final report is to be published next week.

Meanwhile, EUR/USD is trading above the Fibonacci level. A decrease of quotes to 1.09860 will indicate a resumption of the downtrend.


The asset continues to decline due to the lack of support levels. The decline target is the lower limit of the ascending channel.


The asset might go up to 63.50. First of all, China made a move and lifted a ban on US poultry meat imports. Secondly, the market is trading the statement made by OPEC Secretary General Barkindo that there might be downward revisions of supply next year.
