Greenback slides as data portrays uncertainty.
“Investors are currently concerned about recession than inflation, amid mixed data from United States.”
Greenback took a hit last Friday, nosedived to three-weeks low against other major currencies. Earlier, Fed preferred inflation measure – PCE Price Index shows continuous rise in consumer’s inflation. Both PCE and Core PCE toppled market’s expectation despite Fed’s recent rate hike. Nonetheless, dollar bulls were discouraged as University of Michigan’s consumer inflation expectation eases, signaling Fed to put a halt on policy tightening if future data support such view.
