Dollar drifts after historic rise, with US CPI due to extend or reverse the course

Last week saw the ECB raise rates by 75 basis-points, with many expecting another oversized 75bp hike in a bid the reverse inflation and the deterioration of the euro. That is particularly notable, as the likes of the ECB and their peers will recognize that part of the inflation story will come from imported inflation as the dollar surges higher. Nonetheless, while we have seen the likes of EURUSD reverse upwards in the wake of the ECB meeting, tomorrow brings a fresh look at US inflation. Looking at the trajectory of headline inflation in North America, there is a clear divergence from Europe that brings obvious interest for its potential implications on monetary policy if developed further. European sensitivity to Russian energy brings the potential for prolongued and loftier inflationary pressures, drawing greater need for higher rates.

The breakdown in US inflation shows that much of the movement in CPI comes from fluctuations in energy prices, with last month’s decline largely derived by a sharp decline in energy price growth. The declines seen in WTI crude since then does raise hopes of another weaker headline CPI figure, with markets widely predicting a figure of 8.1% (vs 8.5% in July). Should such a move occur, we could be looking at another bout of near-term weakness for the dollar as markets seek to gauge whether this will result in a more relaxed approach from the Fed.

The greenback has been on the back foot since the ECB meeting, with the dollar index falling towards the crucial 107.27 support level. A decline through that level would bring expectations of further downside to come. Of course, the expectations of a weaker inflation figure do bring the potential for a higher-than-expected reading, which could help lift the dollar once again. Thus traders should keep a close eye out for the 107.27 level coming into this release, with a break below that threshold bringing expectations of a decline into trendline and Fibonacci support (105.78-106.69).

US Inflation at 8.3% in August, Fed Likely to Retain Hawkish Bias

Sep 13, 2022 | DailyFX
Diego Colman, Market Analyst

AUGUST INFLATION KEY POINTS:

  • August U.S. inflation rises 0.1% month-over-month, prompting the annual rate to ease to 8.3%, from 8.5% in July
  • Core CPI advances 0.6% on a seasonally adjusted basis and 6.3% year-over-year, two tenth of a percent above estimates
  • Inflationary forces are not weakening at the desirable pace despite the ongoing economic slowdown, strengthening the case for higher-for-longer interest rates

    • Naturally after the debut of ERC 404, it was only natural that developers would begin to take advantage of its ability to bridges the gap between fungible (ERC-20) and non-fungible (ERC-721) tokens. One such project is the Dancing Beans ($BEANS) which allows fractional ownership of hilarious meme-inspired creatures NFTs on the blockchain. About a week ago I wrote about the exponential rise of Pandora to 20,000% plus in just five days setting the bar high for competition! I also spoke about other NFT projects like CryptoPunks and Bored Ape Yacht Club but Dancing Beans brings a fresh twist with. While Focusing on fun and interactivity and community-driven approaches the Dancing Beans team is constantly listening to their fans and creating new experiences based on their feedback... For me though, the question is if Beans can follow the successful dancesteps of Pandora and make players, NFT collectors and investors dance about the figures in their wallets. With my fingers crossed, I'm inclined to hold the Beans I bought on Bitget after the recent listing and it has already gone up by 24%... What are your thoughts guys? Pandora style or nah?
