Current trend

Yesterday, the pair strengthened due to strong macroeconomic US releases.

Published on Wednesday, revised data on Q2 US GDP were better than market expectations. Instead of the decline, the index rose from 4.1% to 4.2% and supported the dollar. In addition, Q2 Personal Consumption Expenditures Prices index, published by the Bureau of Economic Analysis of the US Department of Commerce, was also positive.

At the same time, investors are focused on the current process of negotiations on the North American free trade zone, awaiting Canada to join the treaty. Earlier, the US president said that Canada is extremely interested in concluding a trade agreement. The positive outcome of the negotiations will support the US currency.

Today at 14:30 (GMT+2) the publications of July US Personal Spending and Personal Income are expected. Tomorrow at 01:30 (GMT+2), the Bureau of Statistics of Japan will publish data on Consumer Price Index and the Unemployment Rate.
