The direction of the EUR/USD into the close is likely to be determined by trader reaction to 1.1855.
The Euro is edging lower on Wednesday after giving back earlier gains. Sellers came in after buyers failed to take on yesterday’s high. The single-currency is currently moving inside Tuesday’s range, but threatening to take out its low. The currency turned lower after a report on Euro Zone inflation confirmed negative in October on weak energy.

At 13:48 GMT, the EUR/USD is trading 1.1854, down 0.0008 or -0.07%
Euro Zone annual inflation was negative for a third consecutive month in October, matching a four-year low, as energy prices were around 8% lower than a year earlier.

Inflation in the 19 countries sharing the Euro was plus 0.2% month-on-month in October for a 0.3% year-on-year fall, the same annual decline as in September and in line with the initial estimates released at the start of November.

With volatile energy and unprocessed food prices, what the European Central Bank (ECB) calls core inflation, prices rose 0.1% month-on-month and 0.4% year-on-year.

The ECB wants to keep inflation below, but close to 2% over the medium term.
