The main economic release of the week, US CPI, will hit the screens today at 13:30 UK and will likely spur a round of volatility in what has been a quiet FX market so far this year. Headline inflation (y/y), currently at a five-month low, is seen ticking up by 0.1% to 3.2% on stubborn energy prices, while core inflation (y/y) is seen falling to 3.8% from 4.0% in November.

EUR/USD is trying to push higher ahead of the US data. The daily chart shows that a series of higher lows and higher highs that started in early October remains in place, with a trade above the December 28th high at 1.1138 needed to keep the trend going. The early January Golden Cross is providing support while the CCI indicator sits in neutral territory. EUR/USD needs to make a confirmed break above the 20-day simple moving average, currently at 1.0981, to keep pressing higher towards the 1.1075-1.1100 zone.
