The Eurozone CPI Flash Estimate rose by 2.9% less compared to the 3.1% growth estimate, while the Core CPI Flash Estimate reported a 4.2% growth as expected. In addition, German Retail Sales registered a 0.8% drop even if the traders expected a 0.5% growth, while German Import Prices rose by 1.6%, beating the 0.4% growth forecasted.

Later, the US data should move the rate. The CB Consumer Confidence is expected to drop from 103.0 to 100.5, Chicago PMI could jump from 44.1 to 45.4, while the Employment Cost Index may report a 1.0% growth.

Furthermore, the HPI could announce a 0.5% growth versus the 0.8% growth in the previous reporting period, while the S&P/CS Composite-20 HPI is expected to report a 1.8% growth. Tomorrow, the FOMC should shake the markets.

The FED is expected to keep the Federal Funds Rate at 5.50%. Still, the FOMC Press Conference and the FOMC Statement represent high-impact events. Also, the ISM Manufacturing PMI and the JOLTS Job Openings should bring high action.
