EUR/USD is influenced by geopolitics and risk aversion. Following the release of US inflation data for January (10th February), the EUR/USD has declined for a second straight session and continues to bounce off last week’s highs.

A major driver of the pair’s price action continues to be the short end of the US and German cash markets, especially after the recent FOMC and ECB meetings. Germany’s 10-year yield continues to correct lower from recent highs while widening the spread gap against its US counterpart, which remains another weakness for the pair.

Chairperson Lagarde’s later speech will attract some attention on the old continent, but there are no upcoming events on either side of the Atlantic.

In the wake of US consumer price hikes, EUR/USD failed to withstand the 1.1500 level, leading to a correction towards the 1.1300 limits in response to a renewed and fairly strong bias to the US dollar. However, in spite of sustained gains, the pair’s improving prospects appear to be supported by renewed speculation of a potential ECB rate hike sometime later in the year, higher yields in Germany, persistently high inflation, and a reasonable pace of economic growth in other key indicators in the region.

The following major Eurozone events will take place this week: ECB Lagarde (Monday), ZEW Economic Sentiment (Tuesday), EMU Industrial Production (Wednesday), and EMU Consumer Confidence Express (Friday).
