The U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) climbed to an annualized 2.2% from 2.0% in October, while the core rate of inflation unexpectedly slipped to 1.7% from 1.8% during the same period to mark the first slowdown since May. A deeper look at the report showed a 3.9% rise in Energy prices, with transportation costs also climbing 1.9%, while prices for Apparel fell 1.3% in November.
The mixed detailed surrounding the inflation report dragged on the U.S. Dollar, with EUR/USD climbing above the 1.1750 region to end the day at 1.1826. For additional resources, download and review the FREE DailyFX Advanced Guide for Trading the News to learn our 8 step strategy.

- EUR/USD appears to be making another attempt to test the September-high (1.2092) as it snaps the series of lower highs & lows from earlier this week, with both price and the Relative Strength Index (RSI) on course to extend the bullish formations carried over from late-2017.
- Break above the September-high (1.2092) would negate the threat for a double-top, with the next topside hurdle coming in around 1.2130 (50% retracement) followed by the 1.2230 (50% retracement) region.
- May see EUR/USD stage a more meaningful advance if the RSI pushes into overbought territory as it suggests the bullish momentum is gathering pace.
