Soft PPI Mutes EURO


PPI inflation reading for February from the euro area was released today at 10:00 am BST. Data was expected to show a noticeable drop in annual headline measure as well as a negative reading of a monthly measure. Actual report showed an even bigger slowdown than expected with annual PPI inflation dropping from 15.0 to 13.2% YoY and monthly print coming in at negative 0.5% MoM.

Euro area, PPI inflation for February

  • Annual: 13.2% YoY vs 13.3% YoY expected (15.0% YoY previously)
  • Monthly: -0.5% MoM vs -0.3% MoM expected (-2.8% MoM previously)

However, as traders were already offered CPI data for March, which is a more up-to-date measure, it should not come as a surprise that today’s PPI reading for February was largely ignored by markets. EURUSD barely saw any move and continues to trade above resistance zone ranging above 1.0910 mark.
