Week Ahead November 13 – 17
EURUSD pair closed last week’s trading session lower on FED’s chairman Jerome Powell speech. Mr. Powell reiterated the central bank’s approach that any interest rate change will solely be depended on the economic releases. Although the comments that the central bank did not yet achieve to bring inflation at 2% was taken hawkish from market participants and fueled demand for US Dollar as is now pricing in another potential interest rate hike.
As for this week traders and investors will focus on the economic releases from both sides and mainly the CPI numbers form the US and EU. A higher than expected US CPI will boost US Dollar and could add downside pressure on the pair. Many FED officials ae due to speak out during the week. Is good to keep an ear on what they will say.

As for this week traders and investors will mostly focus on the CPI numbers from both the US and the UK. The higher the printing the higher demand will be triggered for any of the currencies.
