One thime that sticks out is that inflationary pressures are still in place.

From the Eurozone report, Chirs Williamson of Markit said;

“The eurozone growth spurt retained strong momentum at the start of the fourth quarter. The October headline PMI reading matched the average seen in the third quarter and puts the region on
course for another 0.6-0.7% expansion in the closing quarter of 2017. With new business growth ticking higher, November should also prove a good month for business activity. “Inflationary pressures have meanwhile lifted higher, with prices charges for goods and services rising at a rate not beaten for over six years. Some price rises merely reflect the pass-through of higher
costs, but companies are also reporting stronger pricing power as demand conditions continue to improve, which suggests underlying inflationary pressures are becoming more engrained.”

Also out earlier;

  • German Sep 2017 industrial orders 1.0% vs -1.5% exp m/m. Prior 3.6%. Revised to 4.1%

EURUSD has done nothing through all this at 1.1612.
