Market Overview

Last Friday saw significant activity as the UK Retail Sales m/m rose by 2.9%, significantly surpassing expectations of 1.6% and the previous month’s -1.8%, providing a boost to GBP/USD.

Meanwhile, the Eurozone experienced weaker-than-expected PMI data. The French Flash Manufacturing PMI fell to 45.3, below the forecast of 46.8, and the German Flash Manufacturing PMI dropped to 43.4, against an expectation of 46.4.  These disappointing figures pressured the EUR/USD downward.

In the US, the Flash Manufacturing PMI came in at 51.7, beating the forecast of 51.0, and the Flash Services PMI rose to 55.1, up from the expected 53.4.  This stronger-than-expected data supported the Dollar Index, which maintained its strength at 105.80.

Events Ahead

Looking ahead to Monday,  the focus will be on speeches from FOMC members Waller at 7:00 and Daly at 18:00, which could provide insights into the Federal Reserve’s future policy moves.

In Europe, the German ifo Business Climate index will be released at 8:00, with a slight increase expected from 89.3 to 89.4. At 10:00, the UK’s CBI Industrial Order Expectations are forecasted to improve to -26 from -33.

Additionally, German Buba President Nagel will speak at 10:10, and the Belgian NBB Business Climate index, expected to rise from -11.0 to -10.2, will be announced at 13:00.

These events will be closely monitored by traders to gauge their potential impact on EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and the Dollar Index.
