Inflation was growing nicely during most of last year, but buy the end of it, the CPI inflation cooled off, with the main CPI figure declined from 2.2% to 2.0% in November and again to 1.6% in December, missing expectations of 1.8%, while the core CPI figure remained unchanged at 1.1%. Inflation fell further to 1.4% in Europe in December and it remained unchanged at 1.4% in January, as well as core CPI at 1.1%. Although, core CPI cooled off further to 1.0% in February while the headline CPI ticked higher to 1.5%. That's the minimum target for the European Central Bank, so if any of the figures fall below these levels, then the Euro will decline because the ECB already turned dovish last month.  Please follow us for real-time coverage of this event by experienced analysts.
