Today, EU will release Industrial Production data for March. Analysts expect that Industrial Production increased by 0.7% month-over-month in March after declining by 1% in February. On a year-over-year basis, Industrial Production is projected to grow by 11.6% as it was under significant pressure in March 2020.

Foreign exchange market traders will also have a chance to take a look at inflation data from the U.S. which is the main economic event of the day. Analysts expect that Inflation Rate increased by 0.2% month-over-month in April. On a year-over-year basis, Inflation Rate is projected to grow by 3.6%. Core Inflation Rate is expected to increase by 2.3% year-over-year.

The key question is whether inflation will rise faster than expected. The Fed has previously stated that it was not worried about higher inflation in the near term, but Fed may be forced to act in case the situation starts to get out of control.
