DOLLAR FUNDAMENTAL BACKDROP

HEADLINE AND CORE INFLATION BEAT ESTIMATES

Market expectations were crushed by both core and headline inflation prints for October which adds additional pressure onto the Fed to bring rate hikes forward. The patient approach has already divided opinions and may further exacerbate the current division or potentially convert individuals in the dovish camp.

PRE-INFLATION BUILD UP

FED SPEECHES MAY POINT TO SOONER THAN EXPECTED RATE HIKE

The start of this week saw numerous Fed officials eluding to the fact that interest rates could be raised in 2022 and not 2023 as anticipated, along with a quicker end to asset purchases (tapering). This comes after inflation has avoided the transitory rhetoric for now and proves to be more “sticky” than initially thought by some; primarily Fed Chair Jerome Powell.

EVERGRANDE GIVES BOOST TO HAVENS

Yesterdays U.S. PPI data came in as expected which did little in the way of USD price action however today an uptick in safe-haven currencies including the dollar has propped the Dollar Index (DXY) above the key 94.00 level. Evergrande debt woes are back in play sparking contagion fears once more.

The weekly DXY chart above may be suggestive of a rising wedge pattern (black) which could see a weaker dollar should prices break (candle close below) wedge support.

Contrary to the rising wedge, the 20-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) has recently crossed above the 50-day EMA, also referred to as a bullish crossover and may indicate further upside to come.
