US dollar index gains ground, as investors await the U.S. inflation report – Daily Market Brief, August 10, 2022

Today’s U.S. Consumer Price Index report is likely to reveal that decades-high inflation moderated in July following two 75-basis point hikes by the Federal Reserve in June and July.

The safe-haven dollar inched higher on Tuesday, recovering previous losses as risk appetite faded ahead of critical inflation data that could provide hints as to how aggressively the Federal Reserve would raise interest rates in September as predicted.

The U.S. dollar reversed course as U.S. stock markets fell in response to profit warnings, global inflationary concerns, and data indicating that U.S. worker productivity fell sharply in the second quarter. 

Key Factors for Today

– Most Asian equities were in the red after the poor handover from the US.
– Futures for European equities imply a marginally weaker opening.
– Chinese inflation figures fell short of expectations
– G10 currency pairs are rangebound before the US CPI

Coming Up 

– US CPI
– German CPI
– Supply from Germany & US
– Speeches from BoE’s Pill, Fed’s Evans & Kashkari
– Earnings from Disney, Honda, Fox, Aviva & Evonik
