US Dollar recovers terrain, eyes on PCE – FXStreet

  • The US Dollar began Tuesday with a strong rebound.
  • Fed officials are remaining cautious given mixed economic data.
  • May’s PCE figures will be released on Friday and will be the highlight of the week.

On Tuesday, the US Dollar, as measured by the Dollar Index (DXY), started the week weakly but has since strengthened to 105.70. The recovery in US yields appears to be ignoring a slight decline in consumer confidence reported during the session.

The U.S. economic picture remains complicated: While there are some signs of declining inflation, most Federal Reserve officials remain cautious.

  • Investors focused on the Conference Board’s consumer confidence index on Tuesday, which fell slightly to 100.4 from a revised 101.3 in May, signaling a somewhat slower pace of consumer spending activity.
  • Moving on to Thursday, revised gross domestic product (GDP) growth for this year is expected to remain at 1.3%.
  • Friday will be a key event as the Fed is scheduled to release May personal consumption expenditures (PCE) data, its go-to inflation measure.
  • Headline and core PCE are both forecast to fall to 2.6% year-over-year, down from 2.7% and 2.8%, respectively, in April.
  • Expectations are growing that the Fed may cut interest rates in November, with a 70% chance that a cut could come as early as September.
  • PCE data plays a key role in influencing market forecasts.
