German Import Price Index
In the Euro Zone today, the Import price index was released by Deutsche Bundesbank. The market was expecting the index to increase by 0.7% in May 2016. However, the outcome was positive, as the change in prices for goods imported by Germany rose 0.9%.
A report recently published by the Bundesbank stated “In the wake of the UK referendum on the country’s membership of the European Union, the European Central Bank and the other central banks of the Eurosystem will closely monitor developments in financial markets. In a press release approved by the Governing Council, the ECB has stated that it is in close contact with other central banks and stands ready to provide additional liquidity, if needed, in euro and foreign currencies“.
It looks like there is a chance of EURAUD moving above the trend line resistance in the short term.
