Although the Bank of England made no change to monetary policy on Thursday and has said nothing to suggest that interest rates are going up any time soon, the PPI numbers prompted investors to wonder whether they might. Rightly or wrongly the market has begun to think a rate increase will come sooner than previously thought. Some analysts say May. It is all very well for the Bank to say the current high inflation rate is the result of temporary pressures - it may even be true - but if people and businesses believe it will rise even further the belief itself will push prices higher. An early interest rate increase could be used to nip that idea in the bud.
The focus in Euroland this week will be on sentiment. ZEW reports on investor confidence in Germany and the euro zone, Brussels publishes its latest take on consumer confidence, and IFO reveals its estimates of German business confidence.
The euro will continue to have a rocky ride until investors regain their confidence in its longer-term survival. That might take a while.
Never underestimate the value of a good exchange rate.

4 January 2011 = EUR 5,800
9 January 2011 = EUR 6,025
That’s a difference of EUR 225 in less than a week!
