On Thursday, important statistics are going to come out in the US. September data on the Consumer Price Index is due at 3:30 pm (all times stated in GMT +3). Both yearly and monthly figures are expected to continue falling, form 0.2% to -1% and from -0.1% to -0.2% respectively. The American economy therefore keeps sliding into deflation. It should be noted that inflation remains one of the key factors for the Fed when making its interest rate decision and this publication is going to be the last before the FOMC October meeting. On Thursday, investors are also waiting for appearances of two Fed officials – Fed’s Bullard speech and Fed’s William Dudley speech are due at 5:30 pm. Their opinions could be particularly interesting before the Fed meeting in the end of the month. On Thursday night at 00:45 am, the Consumer Price Index data for the third quarter of the year is due in New Zealand. The index is expected to remain at the previous level of 0.3% on a year-to-year basis, and to fall from 0.4% to 0.2% quarterly. Confirmation of forecasts will pressure the NZD.
