EU Session Bullet Report – USD stable, String of data ahead

A weak US employment Cost Index (0.2% versus 0.6% expected) was the main reason for the heavy fall of the USD on Friday, especially against the EUR where the majority of long USD traders were positioned.

The news came as a shock to those expecting Fed to increase rates in September. Since costs are still low, wages are likely not to increase, which will not lead to increase spending from the workers, nor for the prices of goods and services to be increased which would lead to higher inflation, and ultimately another reason to increase Rates. So in summary, this reading does not call for a rate hike increase, however the FED will closely watch the news ahead of its meeting to decide the policy.

This week, we have a string of too many important data starting with core PCE, personal spending and ISM manufacturing today, as well as non-farm payrolls on Friday. Weaker data would likely lead to further depreciation of the USD.

Trading quote of the day:
