XE Market Analysis: North America – Jul 31, 2015

The euro was bid following a rise in Eurozone core CPI. EUR-USD logged new intraday highs above 1.0980, driven in part by a strong bid in EUR-JPY, which gained some 80 pips since the London market open. The euro’s bid was sparked by a jump in core Eurozone CPI to 1.0% y/y in July data, up from 0.8% y/y, which offset a benign headline HICP rate of 0.2% and an unexpected dip in German retail sales. USD-JPY re-established itself above 124.00 after dipping to a 123.90 low during Tokyo trade.
