This morning, the greenback is trading lower against most of the major currencies, ahead of the US housing data, scheduled in a few hours.

The GBP is trading higher against the USD, after the UK consumer price inflation beats market forecasts on an annual basis with core inflation notching a five-month high in the month of July. The nation’s annual inflation rate edged up to 0.1% in July, from prior month’s level of 0%. However, the consumer price index remained in red on a monthly basis in July, thereby suggesting less possibility of an interest rate hike from the BoE, as consumer prices in the country are still below its 2.0% target.

The AUD lost ground against the USD, following the release of the RBA minutes from its latest monetary policy meeting. The minutes revealed that a weaker Aussie is supporting economic growth. Further, it expects that US Fed’s rate hike later this year would further depreciate the nation’s currency.

Yesterday, the greenback traded higher in the New York session against the key currencies, after the US housing price index hit its highest level in August since November 2005, at par with market forecasts. On the other hand, the New York Empire State manufacturing index plunged to its weakest reading since 2009 in August, dragged down by steep declines in new orders and shipments.
