The Non-Farm payrolls are announced on Friday at 15:30 MT time.
American inflation data will drive the USD.
Information is not investment advice
The US will release the levels of CPI and core CPI at 14:30 MT time.
CPI is an important indicator, which accounts for a majority of overall inflation. Inflation is important to currency valuation because rising prices lead the Fed to raise interest rates. Last month CPI remained flat, which was lower than the analysts’ expectations. As for the core level of CPI (measure that excludes food and energy process), it came out in line with the forecast. If this time the figures are higher, than the expectations, the USD will get positive momentum.
• If the indicators are higher than the forecast, the USD will rise;
• If the indicators are lower than the forecast, the USD will fall.
A lot of news came out that may impact the market. It’s surely not the time to rely only on technical analysis!
