US CPI Anxiety Keeps Markets On Tenterhooks

Market sentiment remained tethered to anxiety ahead of the release of the consumer price inflation data from the U.S. on Wednesday. Annual headline inflation is seen rising, whereas core inflation is expected to cool slightly. Also due for release in the current week are GDP from U.K., Industrial Production and Retail Sales from China as well as Producer Price Inflation and Retail Sales from the U.S. The European Central Bank’s interest rate decision is due on Thursday.

Wall Street Futures are trading in negative territory. European benchmarks are also trading mostly lower. Asian stock markets finished trading on a mixed note.

Dollar Index bounced back. Bond yields eased across regions. Tight supplies drove crude oil prices higher. Gold futures slipped amidst renewed Dollar strength. Cryptocurrencies rebounded.
