Europe Market Movements

The GBP saw gains against the USD after the CPI release yesterday swinging up from 1.3896 at 9.25 GMT up to 1.3923 three hours later. With no events in the UK today, the markets are now waiting for the US CPI and Core CPI releases this afternoon which will probably also influence Federal Reserve interest rate policy. EUR traders for their part, are looking at the Gross Domestic Product data for EUR volatility.

Other than the US CPI and Core CPI releases, which as said, will probably move the USD, the weekly oil inventories report usually affects the loonie. The USDCAD fell from a high of 1.26 yesterday afternoon to 1.261 to 1.257 this morning. Watch out for movement on this front.
