The Euro (EUR) has made a small decline against the US Dollar (USD) today, in the wake of data confirming that German inflation rates slowed during June.
The finalised figures have shown that base annual inflation slowed from 2.2% to 2.1%, while the monthly inflation rate fell further with a shift from 0.5% to 0.1%.
These outcomes were largely forecast by currency traders beforehand, but the confirmation has still lowered confidence and worsened the EUR/USD exchange rate.
Because Germany has such a large economy, slowing inflation here could mean that the overall Eurozone inflation rate declines.
This would reduce the likelihood of a near-term interest rate hike from the European Central Bank (ECB), especially if inflation fell below the 2% target range.

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 16.5498. This is an oversold reading. However, a signal is not generated until the Oscillator crosses above 20 The last signal was a sell 3 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 47.66. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a buy 32 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 3. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 2 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a buy 14 period(s) ago.

Our volume indicators reflect volume flowing into and out of EUR= at a relatively equal pace (neutral). Our trend forecasting oscillators are currently bullish on EUR= and have had this outlook for the last 10 periods.
