There are no important economic reports scheduled to be released in the EU today so foreign exchange market traders will focus on inflation data from the U.S.

Analysts expect that Inflation Rate increased by 5.3% year-over-year in August while Core Inflation Rate grew by 4.2%. These reports may have a significant impact on currency dynamics as they will show whether inflation remains under control. Fed Chair Jerome Powell has previously stated that higher inflation was a temporary phenomenon. In case inflation reports meet analyst expectations, Fed will have an opportunity to postpone the reduction of its asset purchase program, which will be bearish for the American currency.
