FXStreet (Córdoba) - The EUR/GBP rose nearly half a cent in a matter of minutes as the euro strengthened in the wake of better-than-expected Eurozone inflation data.

Amid deflationary fears, the Eurozone consumer price index rose 0.8% in February versus 0.7% expected, cutting prospects of a rate cut before the ECB meeting next week. Meanwhile the unemployment rate remained unchanged at 12%. The EUR/GBP jumped to a high of 0.8252, erasing almost completely its weekly losses. At time of writing, the EUR/GBP is trading around 0.8245, recording a 0.3% Friday.
