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.

• If the data is weaker than the forecast, the AUD will go down.
