The USD Big Event That May Crash Forex

The USD Big Event That May Crash Forex

What will happen?

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics releases US Producer Price Index (PPI) and Core PPI on July 14, at 15:30 GMT+3. These indicators show the change in the price of finished goods and services sold by producers for the previous month. The main difference between PPI and Core PPI is that the latter excludes food and energy prices.

Why is it important?

As we keep tracking surging inflation figures, it is important to look at these metrics from the consumer's and producer's sides. When producers charge more for goods and services, the higher costs are usually passed on to the consumer. If the indicator rises, the Fed starts considering monetary policy tightening. The USD strengthens in its turn.

Last time, the headline PPI aligned with the 0.8% forecast. However, the Core PPI showed a lower-than-expected increase (0.5% vs. 0.6% expected). As a result, EURUSD showed mixed performance after the release. If you bought EURUSD on that day with one lot, you could have earned more than $150.

As the US Dollar index is really volatile at the moment, the upcoming CPI release tends to bring much excitement to the market this time. Traders can’t wait to know the data as it can greatly impact the situation on Forex.
