At 11:00 (GMT+2), preliminary data on the euro area's GDP in Q2 2020 will be released. The GDP is the main indicator reflecting the state of the national economy. It takes into account domestic consumption, investment, government spending and exports. The European economy is expected to decline by 11.2% on a quarterly basis and by 13.9% on an annualized basis. The implementation of the forecast can put pressure on EUR.
Preliminary data on the euro area's Consumer Price Index for July are due at 11:00 (GMT+2). It is the main indicator of inflation in the country and determines the change in the level of retail prices for a particular basket of goods and services: food, transportation, utilities, healthcare, etc. It has a significant impact on monetary policy decisions. The CPI is expected to decline from 0.3% to 0.2% on an annualized basis. The implementation of the forecast can put pressure on EUR.
Frankfurt's leading index, DAX 30, dropped significantly yesterday and is now trading at 12360.0.
USD is flat against CAD during today's Asian session, correcting after rather strong growth the day before. Yesterday, USD returned to decline against most of its competitors after the release of disappointing macroeconomic statistics from the US.
NZD rallies against USD during this morning session, hitting record highs since the start of the year. The further strengthening of the instrument is again facilitated by the weak positions on USD, which came under pressure of the disappointing annual data on the dynamics of the US GDP for Q2 2020 released yesterday.
The USD/JPY pair significantly decreases following the actively falling USD and trades at 104.35.
EUR is actively rising against USD during today's Asian session, hitting record highs since May 2018. The instrument is gaining about 0.35% and is testing the important resistance at 1.1900 for a breakout. The next "bullish" impulse was triggered by the publication of annual US GDP data for Q2 2020. The US economy contracted by a record 32.9% YoY, slowing down from -5% YoY in the previous period. The market forecasts assumed an even more significant decline by 34.1% YoY. It should be noted that these figures do not reflect the real situation in the American economy, but they undoubtedly had their effect. In particular, just a few hours after the publication of the data, Donald Trump on Twitter made a proposal to postpone the presidential elections. In turn, EUR came under pressure from weak data from Germany. German GDP in Q2 2020 decreased by 10.1% QoQ and by 11.7% YoY, which turned out to be worse than forecasts of –9% QoQ and –10.9% YoY.
