Pay Attention To US GDP Numbers And PCE inflation
EUR/USD: Last week, the Federal Reserve kept interest rates near zero, but said it would step up the tapering of bond purchases and signaled up to three rate hikes next year to curb elevated inflation. The committee said it would increase the taper of its bond purchases by $30 billion a month in January, double the $15 billion monthly pace announced in November.
The Fed signaled its inflation target has been met, and its announcement on ending the bond purchases paved the way for three quarter-percentage-point interest rate increases by the end of 2022.
Looking ahead, this week’s calendar features U.S. data on GDP growth, Durable Good Orders, and PCE inflation.
US GDP number will be published on Wednesday. Economists predict that Q3 GDP growth is at 2.1% annualized.

The US will publish updates on consumer spending and the Federal Reserve’s preferred inflation gauge on Thursday, which will give fresh insight into the strength of the economy.
The Core PCE price index is expected to rise by 0.4% in November. Year on year, economists forecast a 4.5% rise.
