CPI (Consumer Price Index) is one of the most important Australian economic indicators. The release will take place at 4:30 MT time on July 25. The index has a big impact on the policy of the Reserve Bank of Australia and, as a result, on the Australian dollar’s exchange rate.
Australian CPI is released once in 3 months, so it’s natural that every time the market pays great attention to it. After all, it will set the direction for the AUD:
• If the data is greater than the forecast, the AUD will rise.
• If the data is weaker than the forecast, the AUD will go down.
