EUR/USD – The euro bounced off the bottom to test key resistance

CPI exceeded analysts’ expectations, as the Consumer Price Index for July fell to 8.5% compared to the expected 8.7%. This immediately affected the markets. The dollar index lost 1.22% of its value. The low inflation data suggests that the Fed has done its job and there will likely be no more drastic rate hikes. This gave investors hope that perhaps inflation had peaked and was already starting to fall. A worse-than-expected CPI report is seen as negative for the US dollar, and in this case it gave the euro the strength to move higher and test resistance.
