  • The US consumer price index came out along with expectations yesterday: 0.3%. However, the US Core CPI, which excludes food and energy, was worse than the market estimate: 0.0% vs the expected 0.2%. By the way, the CPI index accounts for a majority of overall inflation, that’s why it’s a significant indicator.
  • Fed’s Chair Jerome Powell held a meeting yesterday. He claimed that the Fed wouldn’t raise rates till the employment reaches the target level and inflation grows to 2%. The dovish Fed and the weak US inflation data pressed the dollar down.
  • Crude oil inventories encouraged investors with the 6.6 million barrels drop in inventories, while analysts anticipated they would fall by 900 000 barrels. It should be the catalyst for oil to rally up further.

Technical analysis

EUR/USD stopped ahead of the 200-period moving average (MA) at 1.2150. Since the USD is weak, the pair is likely to break through this resistance and jumps to the high of January 22 at 1.2190. In the opposite scenario, the move below the 100-period MA at 1.2090 will drive the pair to the next support of 1.2050.

GBP/USD has failed to cross the resistance of 1.3850. If it manages to do so, the way up to the next round number of 1.3900 will be clear. Support levels are 1.3800 and 1.3730.

USD/JPY is moving in an ascending channel in a short term. Thus, it’s likely to bounce off the 100-day MA at 104.50. But at the same time, the US dollar is weak, so a drop below 104.50 is possible too. The next support will be at the 50-day MA at 104.00. Resistance levels are 105.00 and 105.60.

NZD/USD has formed a symmetrical triangle. Therefore, traders are waiting for the breakout, which will define the further movement. If it breaks above 0.7250, it may surge to the multi-year high of 0.7300. The move below the 50-day MA at 0.7150, the doors towards the next support at 0.7100 will be open.

FED and BOE Make Another Attempt to Beat Inflation

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.
