Private Sector PMIs and Retail Sales Figures Put the EUR, GBP, USD and Loonie in Focus

It’s a busy day ahead, with private sector PMIs for January to set the tone. Expect retail sales figures from Canada to also drive the Loonie.

For the Japanese Yen

The annual rate of core inflation picked up from 0.5% to 0.7% in December, according to figures released by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communication. Economists had forecast an annual rate of core inflation of 0.7%.

The Japanese Yen moved from ¥109.528 to ¥109.552 upon release of the figures, which preceded the prelim PMI numbers.

Japan’s manufacturing PMI increased from 48.4 to 49.3 in January, with Japan’s services PMI jumping from 49.4 to 52.1, according to prelim figures.

For the EUR

It’s a busy day ahead on the economic calendar. Key stats include prelim January private sector PMI numbers out of France, Germany, and the Eurozone.

We can expect the numbers to garner plenty of attention, with the markets expecting improved private sector conditions.

On the monetary policy front, ECB President Lagarde is also scheduled to speak, though there are unlikely to be too many surprises following Thursday’s press conference.

At the time of writing, the EUR was down by 0.02% to $1.1053.

For the Pound

It’s a relatively busy day ahead on the economic calendar. January prelim private sector PMI numbers are due out later today.

While the manufacturing numbers will influence, expect the services PMI to have the greatest impact. The devil may well be in the details, however, with new orders and employment likely to be the main areas of focus.

On the geopolitical front, Brexit will also be in focus as Britain prepares to enter the transition period at the end of next week.
