EUR/USD focus remains on US events

The US fiscal stand-off continues to be the sole protagonist in the last weeks, although there is still no agreement to re-open the federal shutdown, and more relevant, rise the debt ceiling. Negotiations look set to continue today, as tomorrow’s deadline commenced to ring alarm bells amongst investors. Data-wise, EMU’s inflation figures will be the most significant event in the region ahead of Draghi’s speech tonight, with consensus expecting consumer prices to rise at an annual pace of 1.1% during September (Core reading 1.0%). Across the pond, TIC flows will be in the spotlight amidst Fedspeak and the Fed’s Beige Book.

EUR/USD key levels

The pair is now losing 0.06% at 1.3514 with the immediate support at 1.3479 (low Oct.15) followed by 1.3467 (low Sep.30) and finally 1.3462 (low Sep.25). On the flip side, a breakout of 1.3571 (high Oct.15) would open the door to 1.3598 (high Oct.14) and then 1.3605 (high Oct.9).
