Will CPI push USD higher?

What will happen?

The US CPI will come out on Wednesday, May 11, at 15:30 MT time (GMT+3).

The index accounts for most of the overall inflation. Inflation is important to currency valuation because rising prices lead the central bank to raise interest rates. 

Last time, the CPI met the expectations but beat the previous month's numbers. As a result, the EURUSD lost more than 500 points. If you traded one lot, you could have earned more than $500.
