German ZEW Economic Sentiment slightly misses – EUR/USD stable


German ZEW economic sentiment rises from 10.4 to 12.8 points. This is a bit under 13.1 expected. Current Conditions follow the same pattern: a small rise from 76.4 to 77.3 points, below 78 expected.

Industrial output misses expectations with a rise of 0.9% against 1.3% expected, but this is accompanied by an upwards revision. Year over year, output is up 0.6%.

EUR/USD is marginally lower within recent ranges, trading around 1.0637. The pair tried to move to higher ground after the ECB’s slight hawkish tilt. However, it was only a slight one, meaning it could not rally too much.

In addition, we are now awaiting the Dutch elections as well as the Fed decision.
