Week commencing 13 November

Chris Beauchamp's insight

US and UK consumer price index (CPI) reports dominate the week, as investors wait to hear the latest news on the key indicator of the past year. Other UK data such as employment figures and retail sales will drive activity in sterling. US retailers such as WalMart update the market with earnings, while in the UK BAE Systems and Burberry are among the major companies reporting results.

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics recently reported a decline in the PPI for final demand on a year-over-year basis. The PPI decreased to 2.7% in March from 4.9% in February.

The crypto market is sensitive to macroeconomic indicators, and these lower-than-expected inflation figures may have several implications. A slower rate of inflation may signal a less aggressive monetary policy response from the Federal Reserve, potentially leading to a more risk-on environment for investments. This may result in a positive impact on the crypto market as investors seek out alternative assets, such as BTC, Bitget BGB, and other utility cryptocurrencies, to benefit from potential growth opportunities.
