U.S. Dollar Index Fails To Continue Its Rebound

USD/CAD  has managed to settle below 1.3330 as the U.S. dollar is losing ground against a broad basket of currencies while WTI oil is trying to settle above $42.50.

Today, Russia has announced that it had approved the world’s first COVID-19 vaccine, and this news boosted risk-on sentiment in the global markets despite the widespread criticism of the vaccine due to its rushed development.

The U.S. Dollar Index has failed to settle above 93.50 but did not gain significant downside momentum. In my opinion, the U.S. Dollar Index maintains its chances to continue the rebound and get above the 20 EMA at 94.10. Such a move would be bullish for USD/CAD.

The U.S. has reported that producer prices increased by 0.6% month-over-month in July, indicating that demand was rebounding. Tomorrow, the U.S. will report Inflation Rate for July. Analysts expect that July’s Inflation Rate was 0.8% on a year-over-year basis, while Core Inflation Rate was 1.1% on a year-over-year basis.
