Great Britain will release the level of CPI on May 22, at 11:30 MT time. The indicator is considered as the most important inflation data for Great Britain, as it’s used as the inflation target of the Bank of England. Last time the indicator came out lower, than the expectations. It reached 1.9% instead of 2% anticipated by analysts. As a result, the British pound plunged. However, the current release may lead to a different outcome.
• If the actual level of CPI is higher than the forecasts, the GBP will go up;
• If the actual level of CPI is lower than the forecasts, the GBP will go down.
The market sentiment deteriorated amid increasing virus cases in the USA and Australia. Investors prefer safe-haven assets like gold, the US dollar and the Japanese yen.
The Reserve Bank of Australia will publish its statement and announce the interest rate on July 7, at 7:30 MT time.
The overall market sentiment was mixed after the USA recorded the largest increase in virus cases since May 9. The data even offset the better-than-expected NFP.
