Significant events to watch:

-EU (EUR): Eurozone Producer Price Index (PPI) YoY

-US (USD): U.S. ISM Non-Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index (PMI)

-US (USD): U.S. Initial Jobless Claims

EU (EUR): Eurozone Producer Price Index (PPI) YoY – The Producer Price Index (PPI) measures average changes in prices received by domestic producers for their output. It is a leading indicator of consumer price inflation, which accounts for the majority of overall inflation. Usually a rise in PPI will lead in a short time to a rise in CPI and therefore to a rising interest rates and rising currency. during recession, the producers are not able to roll over the rising cost of material to the consumer, so a rise in PPI will not be rolled over to the consumer but will lower the profitability of the producer and will deepen the recession, that will lead to a fall in local currency.

The previous reading was -8.8% worse than the expected -8.7%. The next report is due on February 05, 2024 at 10:00 GMT. Its forecast stands at -10%.

US (USD): U.S. ISM Non-Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) – The Institute of Supply Management (ISM) Non-Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) (also known as the ISM Services PMI) report on Business, a composite index is calculated as an indicator of the overall economic condition for the non-manufacturing sector. The NMI is a composite index based on the diffusion indexes for four of the indicators with equal weights: Business Activity (seasonally adjusted), New Orders (seasonally adjusted), Employment (seasonally adjusted) and Supplier Deliveries.

A higher than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the USD, while a lower than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the USD.

The previous reading came out to be 50.6 worse than the expected 52.6. The next report is due on February 05, 2024 at 15:00 GMT. Its forecast stands at 52.
