Today, foreign exchange market traders will focus on two key events. The U.S. will release inflation data for May while the European Central Bank will announce its Interest Rate Decision.
ECB is expected to leave the interest rate unchanged, so traders will focus on the Bank’s commentary which may have a material impact on currency dynamics.
In the U.S., the key question is whether Inflation Rate moved above the 5% level in May (the current analyst consensus is 4.7%).
Traders will also have a chance to take a look at the latest job market data from the U.S. Initial Jobless Claims are expected to decline from 385,000 to 370,000 while Continuing Jobless Claims are projected to decrease from 3.77 million to 3.6 million.
