Keep Your Eye On ECB Rate Decision And US GDP Growth This Week
The US Dollar was under pressure last week after Federal Reserve officials bolstered expectations of an aggressive rate cut this month to address weakening inflation.
New York Federal Reserve President John Williams said that the Fed will “act quickly” to support the economy as “it’s better to take preventative measures than to wait for disaster to unfold.”
Looking ahead, we will closely watch the US second-quarter gross domestic product on Friday, which is expected to see a growth of 1.8%, slowing from 3.1%.
We will focus on US Durable goods orders on Thursday. Excluding transportation in the meantime are expected to ease to 0.2% in June from 0.4% the previous month. Investors will also get an update on the health of the U.S. housing market from reports on existing home sales, new home sales and the house price index. A better than expected results will support DXY and bond yields in the US.
In the Eurozone area, the ECB is widely expected to leave interest rates unchanged when it announces its policy decision on Thursday. Weaker inflation in the eurozone and downside risks from global trade issues, coupled with signs that the Fed’s next move could be dovish, markets will focus on ECB President Mario Draghi’s press conference for similar signs of future easing.
