Last week was very interesting for the markets, as we saw the releases of the US Inflation and Disney’s earnings report. So let's see what we should await this week!
Inflation data may push the USD higher
The United States will publish the level of CPI and core CPI on June 12, at 15:30 MT time.
The consumer price index represents a huge part of the overall inflation. Its core level excludes the prices of food and energy due to their high volatility. Last time the actual figures of indicators disappointed the market. The headline CPI advanced only by 0.3% (vs. 0.4% expected) and the core CPI increased by 0.1% (vs. 0.2% expected). The releases weakened the USD. Let's see what happens to the greenback this time.
• Higher-than-expected figures of indicators will push the USD up;
• Lower-than-expected figures of indicators will pull the USD down.
