Can PPI influence USD in March?

Can PPI influence USD in March?

What will happen?

The Bureau of Labor Statistics will release the Producer Price Index (PPI) on March 15, at 14:30 MT time. PPI is usually published monthly, about 13 days after the end of the previous month. This index shows changes in the price of finished goods and services sold by producers. PPI is one of the basic indicators of inflation: when producers charge more for goods and services, the higher costs are usually passed on to the consumer.

Possible USD moves

The rising inflation in the US, which is now at 7.5%, is still a hot question for traders.

Over the last year, the PPI growth was relatively high, even though in January 2022 the result was only 0.2%. In February 2022, the release was at 1.0%, greater than the expected 0.5%. That last release provoked a short-time jump of USD by 250 points. Then USD went down with no crucial leaps.


How to trade on the American PPI Release?

If the actual rate is greater than “Forecast”, it is better for the currency.

Any important US release, especially the PPI, can cause market fluctuations. Even if the release doesn’t bring any surprises, it can cause swings in USD. As a result, the market can bring exciting opportunities.
