USD Still Strong from Inflation

Michael J. Donoghue
USD Still Strong from Inflation

This morning, at 8:30 am Eastern Time, the United States’ Bureau of Labor Statistics revealed that inflation had once again beaten expectations. Market forecasts had anticipated a 0.1% decrease in month-over-month CPI in August, whereas a 0.1% increase was the result. However, even bigger news was month-over-month Core CPI coming in hot at 0.6%, double the 0.3% increase that had been forecast.

With annual core inflation in the US currently sitting at 6.3%, sharp declines in volatile energy prices are still not enough to bring the country’s inflation train to a screeching halt. This gives the Federal Reserve further incentive to continue raising interest rates, which manifested in a surge of buying pressure for USD this morning as the US Dollar Index jumps 1% intraday. With even a technical recession and a rising unemployment rate unsuccessful in completely mitigating economic overheating, USD bulls may have fundamentals on their side for the near future.
