NOVEMBER PMI SURPRISE BEAT PUSHES EURO HIGHER
Eurozone PMI exceeded expectations this morning:
- Composite = 55.8, EST 53.2
- Manufacturing = 58.6, EST 57.3
A studying above 50 is suggestive of an increasing financial system which was anticipated after Germany and France gave some indication to the estimate beat this morning when each international locations introduced constructive prints. This may occasionally come as a shock to many contemplating the present COVID-19 state of affairs in Europe, and was mirrored post-announcement with the Euro buying and selling marginally larger towards the buck.
Closing off 2021 excessive power costs, provide bottlenecks and COVID-19 issues are more likely to stay and hinder EU financial progress. This is not going to bode effectively for Euro bulls and will see additional depreciation towards the greenback.
Supply: DailyFX Financial Calendar
The U.S. greenback gained additional floor on the Euro yesterday after Fed Chair Jerome Powell was reelected. Markets think about Powell the “hawkish” alternative however in actuality he’s removed from a hawk, which leads me to imagine the greenback rally will right itself short-term. Later as we speak, U.S. PMI information (see calendar above) might swing momentum again in favor of EUR/USD bears – information dependent.
