USD had a bullish session late last week but not enough to save it from being one of the worst two weeks of price dropping this year. Although the volatility at the end of the week was not large, it was enough to generate noticeable signals.

Latest updates:

  • PCE data - the Fed's preferred inflation gauge - came in below expectations (0.4% vs. 0.6%).
  • US consumer sentiment was higher than expected (81.2 vs 80.8).
  • Chairman Jerome Powell made it clear that raising interest rates is still a long way off and more economic progress is needed before the Fed begins to implement monetary stimulus measures.
  • The euro area economy grew faster than expected in the second quarter, as positive surprises in France, Spain and especially Italy offset mild disappointment in Germany.
  • Crude oil prices fell on renewed concerns about the strength of the US and Chinese economies.
