The German GDP report for Q4 2022 was released today at 9:00 am GMT. Report turned out to be a disappointment with GDP growth coming in at 0.5% YoY, compared to 0.8% YoY expected. On a quarter-over-quarter basis, German growth dropped 0.2% QoQ (exp. 0.0% QoQ). EUR pulled back following the release while DE30 ticked higher.
EURUSD has been on the rise following the release of the Spanish CPI report for January. Spanish data showed CPI accelerating from 5.7 to 5.8% YoY. While this is a small acceleration, the market expected a slowdown to 4.8% YoY. This may put under question any dovish shift from ECB, especially if CPI data from Germany confirms it tomorrow. Keep in mind that ECB is set to announce its next monetary policy decision this Thursday at 1:15 pm GMT.
