Euro-zone CPI beats with 1.3% – EUR/USD ticks up

The preliminary inflation report for June was expected to show a slowdown in headline CPI from 1.4% to 1.2%. Core inflation was predicted to recover from 0.9% to 1%.

Early indications were mixed: Spain’s measure missed expectations while Germany’s figure beat expectations. The French figures met estimates.

EUR/USD was trading lower, just around 1.14. It had already reached a new 14-month high of 1.1445.  Preview: EUR/USD: Inflation data could start the next rally[1]

Earlier in the day, we learned that German retail sales jumped by 0.5% against 0.3% expected. However, the number of the unemployed rose by 7K, a rarity in Germany, where jobless claims were in the fall for a long time.
