The EURUSD pair surged on Thursday: After somewhat hawkish ECB decision - and weakening US CPI - it was trading 0.5% stronger

13 September 2018

The EURUSD pair surged on Thursday after a combination of a somewhat hawkish ECB decision along with a weakening of US CPI. The pair was seen trading 0.50% stronger during the US session, hovering slightly below the important 1.17 mark.

The ECB has left monetary policy unchanged today, but it cut the 2019 GDP outlook from 2.1% to 1.9%. Subsequently, Draghi also said the ECB projects, "significantly stronger core inflation." This was a hawkish sign and the EURUSD rose afterward.

Moreover, the US CPI slowed more than expected and the yearly print came out at 2.7% in August, down from 2.7% in July. Additionally, the core gauge also missed estimates and decelerated from 2.4% to 2.2%. The greenback was sold-off after this news.

More important US data will be released on Thursday, such as retail sales, industrial production and capacity utilisation.
