We think the market is underestimating the stickiness of US inflation, the Fed's resolve in tackling it, and the necessary tightening required to achieve lower inflation.
US CPI on August 10 may be a critical market catalyst for the next leg of the USD rally should it exceed market expectations.
It should be noted that the the headline US CPI is expected to ease to 8.7% YoY from 9.1% market forecasts whereas the CPI ex Food & Energy (Core CPI) is likely to rise from 5.9% to 6.1%.
