US building permits and new home sales data

The EUR/USD pair has been in a strong uptrend in the past few weeks. It has jumped as investors have placed their bet that the Federal Reserve has ended its rate hikes after it pushed them from zero to between 5.25% and 5.50%.

The recent data shows that America’s inflation dropped from 3.7% in September to 3.2% in October. Core inflation, which excludes the volatile food and energy prices, has dropped to about 4%.

There is a likelihood that inflation drifted downwards again in November as energy prices retreated. Brent, the global benchmark, dropped to $80 while the West Texas Intermediate (WTI) moved to $75. The average gasoline price in the US has dropped to $3.25 down from last month’s $3.53. Gas prices stood at $3.56 a year ago.

The next important inflation gauge to watch will come later this week when the US will publish the latest PCE data. Economists expect the data to show that the PCE rose by 3.1% on a YoY basis while the core PCE rose by 3.5%.

The other EUR/USD news will be the upcoming European inflation data for November. Economists expect the data to show that the euro area inflation dropped to 2.7% on a YoY basis, the lowest point since July 2021. The underlying inflation is expected to come in at 3.9%. These numbers will come out on Tuesday.

The US will also publish the latest building permits and new home sales data on Monday. Building permits are expected to come in at 1.48 million and new home sales are expected to be at 721k.
