USD continues to decline against the majority of its competitors. In general, the downward trend is technical. The strengthening of USD the day before, caused by the growth in yields of ten-year government bonds to seven-year highs, provided attractive conditions for taking profits on long dollar positions, resulting in a downward correction. The dollar index fell by 0.34% to 94.94 points in one day.
The main macroeconomic release of the day will be the publication of data on inflation in the United States. It is expected that in annual terms the value of the indicator will decrease to 2.4% in September from 2.7% a month earlier, and in monthly terms it will remain unchanged at the level of 0.2% in September. If the forecast proves right, the instrument will fall under pressure.
