CHF/JPY: CHF/JPY surged in today’s session. Further bullish momentum will lead the exchange rate to hit the previous top and even higher into fresh highs.
European Market View
The euro area flash HICP rose to 3.0% in August, which is the highest print since November 2011 (from 2.2% in July). The energy price inflation remained elevated but the biggest pro-inflationary factor this month was the jump in core inflation to 1.6% (from 0.71% in July). The high print fuels the ECB hawks argument to push for an end to crisis fighting tools sooner rather than later.
