Upcoming Events Impacting EUR/USD and GBP/USD Forecasts

On Friday, the Eurozone witnessed a steady German Final CPI month-over-month, matching forecasts and previous figures at 0.2%, while Italian Industrial Production outperformed expectations with a 1.1% increase compared to the anticipated 0.8%, reversing a prior decline of -1.3%.

Events Ahead

Looking ahead, significant speeches from FOMC members, including “Defining a Bank” by FOMC Member Bowman at the American Bankers Association Conference and FOMC Member Barkin’s address at the Atlanta Economics Club, are poised to influence market sentiment.

Additionally, the Federal Budget Balance announcement is on the horizon, potentially impacting the Dollar’s trajectory.

Across the pond, GBP/USD traders are awaiting remarks from BOE Governor Bailey at Loughborough University, which could provide further direction for the Pound in contrast to the Dollar’s performance.
