USD: are American consumers confident enough?

USD: are American consumers confident enough?

CB Consumer Confidence index will be announced at 17:00 MT time on Tuesday.

Instruments to trade: EUR/USD, USD/GBP, AUD/USD, USD/JPY

These days don’t seem too eventful in terms of planned economic meetings or announcements on the global scale. That’s good: it gives us time to look at many other indicators, apart from the usual labor statistics, inflation, and interest rates. One of these is consumer confidence. Although it does not move the currency prices as intensely as the primary indicators do, it may still have its effect if it significantly deviates from expected levels. CB Consumer Confidence index is a summary of a questionnaire done with 5000 households. They inform on the economic outlook, current conditions, spending, and business environment. If the indicator overshoots the forecast, it supports the national currency. Hence, we are yet to see how confident the US consumers are about their country’s economy.

  • If CB Consumer Confidence index outperforms the forecasts, the USD will gain;
  • If CB Consumer Confidence index underperforms, the USD will drop.

The Federal Reserve (Fed) will announce its Interest Rate Decision and make a statement about the future monetary policy on Wednesday, September 21, GMT+3. After the higher-than-expected inflation numbers published on September 13, there’s almost no doubt the Federal Reserve will come up with another 75-basis-point rate hike. However, surprised by the CPI numbers, several Fed members announced the possibility of a 100-basis-point rate hike on Wednesday.
