The base index in annual terms grew by 1.0 % in April after the February growth by 0.7%.

The ECB is likely to prefer to wait until the inflation data for May release as then we can talk about the absence of seasonal fluctuations. According to experts' expectations for the foreseeable future inflation will remain significantly low. The ECB will have to consider other risks that are combined with low inflation will affect the economy.

The economy key risk to the expert's opinion is the further strengthening of the housing market, accompanied by a decline in lending standards. Nevertheless, interest rates likely will not rise immediately and gradually.

It is worth paying attention to the PMI for the construction sector. The mortgage lending release showed minimum values for the last five months in March, indicating the negative trends in the UK construction sector. Amid this it is difficult to rely on the data output better than consensus-forecast which is negative for the pair. American labor market can also support the demand for the U.S. currency and we can expect a gradual cable decline during the day. The support levels are 1.6840 - 1.6860, and the resistance levels are 1.6910 - 1.69300.

MACD is horizontal, indicating the current corrective movement rates.

Trading Recommendations

If the pair tests 1.6920-1.6950 we recommend opening the short positions with the target level 1.6820-1.6800.
