If we look at last Wednesday’s US consumer price index; it rose 0.3% last month, picking up from the 0.1% increase seen in September. In the 12 months through October, inflation rose 2.5%, in line with expectations and up from 2.3% in September. Upbeat economic data are supporting for the Federal Reserve to move forward with its plan for gradual interest rate hikes.
Looking ahead among next week's US data, Building Permits, Housing Starts, Core Durable Goods Orders as well as Existing Home Sales will be closely followed by traders.
The US Durable Goods are expected to fell by 2.5% last month. Core orders, which exclude volatile transportation items, are forecast to rise 0.4%.
In addition to the US data, watch out for the ECB meeting minutes. The ECB kept policy unchanged their last meeting and they stayed on track to end its bond purchases this year and raise interest rates next autumn. The minutes may help forecasters model ECB’s upcoming decisions.
