Here are a short wrap of the latest news and the tech analysis of EUR/USD, AUD/USD, and gold.
Will the US CPI boost the USD?
The American CPI is announced on Wednesday at 15:30 MT time.
Instruments to trade: EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUD/USD, USD/CAD
Consumer prices are the indicator and the main component of country inflation. Inflation, above all, is the indicator of economic activity. More consumer demand – higher prices, lower consumer demand – lower prices. Consumer demand, in turn, is the basis of domestic economic health and prosperity. Therefore, if the US CPI is higher than the forecasts, that would mean that the US economy is recovering faster than projected. Such a scenario would boost the USD.
- If the CPI is better than though, the USD will rise.
- Otherwise, it will drop.
The Australian economy has been on a steady recovery path, and now we have a very symbolic confirmation that S&P ASX 200 is about to cross 7000!
