Flash German CPI report for September was released today at 1:00 pm BST. Market was expecting headline German CPI to decelerate from 6.1% YoY in August to 4.6% YoY in September. State-level CPI readings released throughout the day indeed suggested that a noticeable slowdown may be reported. However, flash CPI data from Spain released this morning showed an unexpected pick-up.
Actual data from German confirmed significant deceleration that was expected and showed a slightly lower than expected reading of 4.5% YoY. EUR pulled back slightly following the release with EURUSD moving around 0.05% lower. However, the reaction was short-lived and has been completely erased within minutes of the release.
