The overall market sentiment is mixed as new virus cases continue rising throughout the world, but most economic indicators came out better than analysts expected. Let’s look at the main market movements.
Get ready to trade the USD on the inflation data.
The US will release monthly consumer price index figures (CPI) for October at 15:30 MT time on November 14.
This indicator is important as this is the base for the Federal Reserve future monetary policy decisions. Last month the inflation rate declined by 0.1% and made the USD weak. The higher-than-expected level will be appreciated by the market, so the USD will get a chance to strengthen.
• If CPI outperforms the forecast, the USD will rise.
• If CPI is lower than the forecast, the USD will fall.
The market sentiment switched to risk-off after the Fed’s Powell statement. The USD edged higher, while risker assets started falling after reaching quite high levels. Let’s have a closer look.
The overall market sentiment is mixed as investors await the Federal Reserve’s statement today at the evening.
The US NFP will be published on August 7 at 15:30 MT time.
The market sentiment is indeed risk-on today. Stocks, riskier currencies and gold are rising amid the waning US dollar.
