EUR/USD Gains Below 1.0800 After Softer US CPI Data

The US experienced a cooling of inflation in November, as reflected by the Consumer Price Index (CPI). The CPI saw a modest 0.1% increase during the month, resulting in a slowdown of the annual rate from 3.2% in October to 3.1% in November. Notably, the core annual reading remained steady at 4%.

EUR/USD has retreated from its gains below the 1.0800 level in American trading on Tuesday. The US Dollar is rebounding as the latest US CPI report indicates increased price pressures, leading to a shift in market expectations regarding Fed rate cuts.

Bearish Start to the Week and Early Tuesday Recovery

After a bearish start to the week, EUR/USD managed to stabilize during the American trading hours on Monday, closing the day with minimal changes. The pair initially gained traction early Tuesday, approaching the 1.0800 mark amidst decreasing US yields. However, investors might be cautious about betting on further weakness in the US Dollar ahead of the highly-anticipated November inflation report.

Impact of Absence of High-Tier Data Releases

With the absence of major data releases, the relatively positive market sentiment made it challenging for the USD to maintain its strength on Monday. Additionally, the high-yield at the recent 10-year US Treasury note auction decreased to 4.29% from the previous auction’s 4.51%. This decline caused US T-bond yields to decrease further, adding pressure on the USD.

GBP/USD Retreats Towards 1.2500 Amid US CPI Data Meeting Expectations and US Dollar Recovery

The GBP/USD is pulling back from its recent gains and approaching the 1.2500 level. This movement comes after the release of US CPI data that matched expectations. As a result, there has been an overall recovery in the US Dollar, bolstered by higher US Treasury bond yields. Furthermore, the pair is experiencing pressure due to a decrease in UK wage inflation during October.
