EURUSD Above 1.09 on French CPI Data


French flash CPI data for March was released today at 7:45 am BST. Report, just like reports from other European countries, was expected to show a significant deceleration in year-over-year reading. However, actual data showed a smaller than expected slowdown, just as it was the case with German data yesterday. French CPI slowed from 6.3 to 5.6% YoY in March, while the market expected a slowdown to 5.5% YoY. On a monthly basis, CPI reached 0.8% MoM, above 0.6% MoM expected by the market but below 1.0% MoM print from January.

Market reaction was small – DE30 ticked lower in a knee-jerk move before recovering losses while EURUSD moved higher and climbed back above 1.09 mark.
