Ready to trade the first full trading week this month? I’ve listed the potential market themes that might affect the dollar’s price action!

Let me know if I’ve missed anything:

Lower tier releases

  • ISM’s services PMI (July 6, 2:00 pm GMT) could improve from 45.4 to 49.0 in June
  • EIA’s crude oil inventories (July 8, 2:30 pm GMT) last reflected the biggest crude draw since 2019
  • Weekly initial jobless claims (July 9, 12:30 pm GMT) expected to add another almost 1.4M
  • PPI (July 10, 12:30 pm GMT) to improve from 0.4% to 0.3%
  • Core PPI also seen improving from -0.1% to 0.2%

Overall dollar demand

  • Rising coronavirus cases in the U.S. can continue to keep traders from rushing to higher-yielding bets, which would keep the dollar supported
  • The first full week of Q3 2020 could also see traders buying higher-yielding currencies against the dollar
  • Tensions between the U.S. and China or the U.S. and its other trading partners can influence safe haven demand
