    Weekly EUR/USD Outlook: 2017, August 27 - September 03

    EUR/USD was looking good during the last full week of August and remained range-bound. What’s next? The inflation figures stand out as we turn the page into September.

    Weekly Outlook: 2017, August 27 - September 03-eurusd-mn1-alpari-international-limited.png


    1. Monetary data: Monday, 8:00. The European Central Bank measures the amount of money in circulation (M3 Money Supply) and private loans. The ECB’s expansionary policies pushed the volume of loans back to growth after a period of declines.
    2. German GfK Consumer Climate: Tuesday, 8:00. The score of 10.8 seen in July is the highest in many years.
    3. French Consumer Spending: Tuesday, 6:45. Consumer spending surprisingly dropped by 0.8% in June, rose than expected. Figures so far this year have been quite mixed.
    4. French GDP: Tuesday, 6:45. According to the initial release for Q2, the French economy grew by 0.5%, a robust rate of growth but slightly below the euro-zone average of 0.6%. This publication will likely confirm the first one.
    5. Spanish Flash CPI: Wednesday, 7:00.
    6. German CPI: Wednesday, during the morning, with the all-German number at 12:00. In July, prices in Germany advanced by 0.4%, double the early expectations, eventually pushing the euro-zone numbers higher.
    7. German Retail Sales: Thursday, 6:00.
    8. French CPI: Thursday, 6:45. Similar to Germany, also France’s prices came out higher than expected, but they still slipped by 0.3%.
    9. German Unemployment Change: Thursday, 7:55. This report is also the last one before the German elections on September 24th. Another drop will support Chancellor Angela Merkel.
    10. CPI (preliminary): Thursday, 9:00. The preliminary numbers for August will shape expectations for the ECB meeting.
    11. Unemployment Rate: Thursday, 9:00. An unemployment rate of 9.1% was seen in June, the lowest in 8 years. Another slide is on the cards.
    12. Manufacturing PMIs: Friday, 7:15 for Spain, 7:45 for Italy, final figures for France at 7:50, final German numbers at 7:55 and the final euro-zone figure at 8:00.

    1. Nationwide HPI: Tuesday, 6:00. Various housing price indices have been pointing downwards, but Nationwide’s figure has shown a rise of 0.3% in July.
    2. BRC Shop Price Index: Tuesday, 23:01. The British Retail Consortium’s measure provides another gauge on consumer activity. It dropped by 0.4% y/y in June.
    3. Net Lending to Individuals: Wednesday, 8:30. The level of lending indicates economic activity but also a credit binge that the BOE fears. A rise of 5.6 billion was reported in June, higher than expected
    4. Mortgage Approvals: Wednesday, 8:30. This official figure by the BOE has shown stability in the number of approvals at 65K, for the third consecutive month in June.
    5. GfK Consumer Confidence: Wednesday, 23:01. This 2000-strong survey by GfK has been leaning lower in the past few months. A disappointing drop to -12 was reported in July, worse than projected.

    Weekly USD/JPY Outlook: 2017, August 27 - September 03

    Dollar/yen was leaning lower in a week that saw further political issues for President Trump. Nevertheless, the pair maintains a distance from the 108.10 level which remains critical.

    The last week of August and the first day of September provide a lot of action. A revised measure of GDP, consumer confidence and a short buildup to the Non-Farm Payrolls stand out. Will wages finally rise in the US? The report for August will probably show more of the same. In Japan, we will get industrial output, retail sales, and unemployment. However, politics in the US and geopolitics will move the safe-haven yen more than anything else.
