US CPI released yesterday showed a two-year low inflation rate of 3%, leading to a decline in the US dollar.

Yesterday’s release of the U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) revealed that the country’s inflation had reached a two-year low of 3%, lower than the previous reading and the forecasted figure. As a result, the dollar’s value has declined, hitting its lowest level since last May and trading below $101. Meanwhile, the equity markets have received a boost from the positive economic data and are increasingly convinced that the Federal Reserve’s monetary tightening cycle is drawing to a close. The Japanese Yen has benefited the most against the softening dollar as investors are keen to hold this safe-haven currency in fear of recession. Additionally, the softer inflation data has provided an upward push to oil prices, with the West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil trading above $75 per barrel.

The US Dollar slumped over the backdrop of downbeat inflation reports. the Consumer Price Index showing a rise of just 3% compared to the previous year, the lowest level in over two years. The moderation in inflationary pressures provides the Federal Reserve with an opportunity to recalibrate its monetary policy stance, potentially slowing down its tightening measures. While traders have priced in a strong possibility of a 25-basis points rate hike in the upcoming Federal Reserve meeting in late July, a more dovish stance is being anticipated in the longer term. This sentiment is driven by a series of downbeat economic data, including disappointing job reports and inflation readings, as well as dovish statements from several Federal Reserve members.

Following the release of a dovish US inflation report, oil prices witnessed a substantial surge, bolstered by the aggressive slump in the US Dollar. The prospect of a more accommodative stance from the central bank has fueled optimism regarding future oil demand. In addition, the International Energy Agency (IEA) anticipates a tight oil market throughout the second half of 2023, attributing it to robust demand from China and developing countries, coupled with supply cuts implemented by leading oil producers.
