Coming Up: FOMC And ECB Meeting Minutes!
In last week's congressional testimony, Federal Reserve Chair Powell made clear that there would be no further cuts to U.S. interest rates barring a major deterioration in the economy. Powell said that while the economy is on track right now, there are risks to the current economic expansion.
The market also got fresh US-China trade hope despite no new details on talks being released. White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said that Washington and Beijing were getting close to a deal, and the ‘mood music is pretty good’.
In addition to that; the US Consumer Price Index ticked up to 1.8% on a yearly basis to come in higher than the market expectation of 1.7%. The core CPI, which excludes volatile food and energy prices, edged lower to 2.3% in the same period and missed experts' forecast of 2.4%.
Looking ahead, the economic calendar will bring an update on the health of the U.S. economy, with reports on Building Permits, Housing Starts, Manufacturing and Services PMI, as well as Existing Home Sales.
