EUR/USD Sentiment Weak euro-zone inflation: Euro-zone inflation remains low, with the headline figure at the lows of October: 0.7%. While the German figures already provided a hint, the publication hurt the euro. Core inflation is at 0.8%, still higher than the lowest level of 0.7% seen in December. Nevertheless, it seems that if the euro doesn’t fall on its own, the ECB could act in March, but setting a negative deposit rate, triggering a fall of the euro and an escape from deflation. US enjoys strong growth, but with a caveat: US GDP growth came out at 3.2% in Q4, as expected. However, the big contribution of inventory buildup is not a good sign: inventories could be depleted later on. In addition, weak durable goods orders and a fall in pending home sales show that the road is very bumpy. Fed Taper, Round 2: .The Federal Reserve cut its stimulus program by another $10 billion, lowering QE to $65 billion each month. Outgoing Fed chair Bernanke has indicated that the Fed plans to wind up QE by the end of the year, so we can expect further tapers, barring any surprise downturns in the US economy. The decision was anticipated, and the issues in emerging markets didn’t stop the move, nor did the weak NFP. Emerging markets crisis: The taper, as well as issues in local economies, is taking its toll on the emerging markets such as Brazil, India, China, Turkey, South Africa and Indonesia. The efforts to strengthen the local currencies has had limited success, and some estimate that the outflow of money from these nations has only just begun. Flows out of these countries and into Europe could keep the euro bid. German unemployment tumbles, retail sales fall: The German locomotive continues to pick up speed, much to the delight of the markets. This time it was Unemployment Change, which sparkled in December with a drop of 28 thousand, crushing the estimate of a drop of 5 thousand. This was the indicator’s best showing since March 2011. The Unemployment Rate stayed pegged at 6.8%. Earlier in the week, Consumer Climate and Ifo Business Climate rose, indicating that German businesses and consumers are optimistic about the economy as we begin 2014. Germany is the Eurozone’s largest economy, and the region will need Germany to lead the way to an economic recovery. However, not all is rosy, especially with the big fall in retail sales.
