Mixed Data from U.S. Again

July 18, 2007 (Last updated on November 30, 2009) by
Some more mixed data followed yesterday’s PPI and industrial production today. Their affect on EUR/USD could be noticed as it rallied to new decade maximum on 1.3832 and then returned back below the crucial 1.3800 mark. Consumer Price Index was released slightly better than consensus (0.2% against 0.1%, while it was quite low compared to previous 0.7% rise in June 2006). As for real estate sector — a decline in building permits was dubbed with the increase in new housing starts. Business crude oil inventories were also released today and they showed a decline in 449,000 barrels for the last week. FOMC minutes will be released tomorrow and all Forex traders will listen carefully what Ben Bernanke has to say about U.S. economy so far. Some very high volatility can be expected tomorrow.
