US Q1 GDP revised lower- EUR/USD lifts slightly

The second revision to US Q1 GDP has just been released. Growth over the first 3 months of this year was forecast to be revised slightly lower, from the first estimate of 1.6%. The consensus was for 1.3%. This second revision has shown its rising by 1.3% which was entirely inline. The US Q1 GDP deflator was forecast to remain unchanged at 3.1%. It has matched that too. The core PCE price data was also expected to remain unchanged at 3.7%. That has come in slightly lower, at 3.6%.
