EURUSD - long for recovery to 1.1120

FX:EURUSD   Euro Fx/U.S. Dollar
U.S. overall consumer price inflation was as expected in September, with headline CPI             up 0.3%, but the ex-food and energy measure had a modest 0.1% uptick instead of the 0.2% gain expected. That brought yoy growth in the headline to 1.5% from 1.1%, its highest in just under two years, but the core rate retreated to 2.2% from 2.3%, still implying that the core PCE growth rate will remain a little shy of the Fed's target.
The three-month annualized rates showed some cooling, down to 1.6% from 2.1% for all items, having peaked at 2.6% in July. Excluding food and energy, the annualized rate slipped to 1.9% from 2.0%, lowest since last October, its peak being 2.7% from back in March. That will be little excuse for the Fed, which is looking down the road to a time when full employment should lead to rising wages.
Energy prices were up a hefty 2.9%, explaining the entirety of the difference between the headline and core, as food prices were flat. The most notable category within the core was shelter costs, about a third of the total, which were up 0.35%. That series has been heating up over the past several months, explaining a significant amount of the difference between CPI             and the Fed's preferred PCE, which gives a lower weight to shelter. The medical care index rose just 0.2%, however, its slowest appreciation in six months, and that category is given more weight in the PCE numbers.
The markets anticipate that the Fed will keep rates steady at its November meeting and then hike rates at its upcoming meeting in December.
The USD stepped back on Wednesday after U.S. consumer prices showed a moderation in underlying inflation, prompting markets to trim bets on a December Federal Reserve rate hike. Fed fund futures imply around a 65% probability of the Federal Reserve raising interest rates by December, down from 70% ahead of the U.S. CPI             data.
Federal Reserve Bank of Boston President Eric             Rosengren said the U.S. central bank is already running the economy hot enough to overshoot his estimate for the lowest sustainable level of unemployment and to reach its goal for 2% inflation. Rosengren said this strategy has helped bring more people into the labor force, but if pushed for too long risked triggering higher inflation or asset price bubbles that would force a more severe reaction from the Fed. Rosengren was one of three members of the Federal Open Market Committee to dissent in September when the panel opted to leave rates unchanged, joined by Cleveland President Loretta Mester and Esther George of Kansas City.
The EUR/USD             stabilizes just below 1.1000. Monday's two-and-a-half-month low of 1.0964 is an important support level now. A break of that level could open the way for a test of 1.0912, a low marked on June 24 in the wake of the Brexit vote. Tenkan and kijun lines are negatively aligned and the EUR/USD             is capped by 7-day ema and 76.4% fibo of June-August rise. But technical analysis plays a minor role now. The EUR is weighed by wariness ahead of the European Central Bank's policy meeting on Thursday. The central bank is widely expected to keep its policy unchanged with any decisions on the future of its asset purchase scheme expected to be deferred until December. We do not think that the central bank meeting will contribute to currency headwinds - we think the risk rather lies to the upside for the EUR/USD
