Dollar loses ground after economic data boosts risk appetite

NEW YORK/LONDON (Reuters) – FX SIGNALS – The U.S. dollar lost ground to other currencies including the euro, the yen and sterling after U.S. economic data provided further evidence that inflation was starting to ease, improving investor appetite for riskier assets and reducing demand for the safe-haven greenback.

The U.S. producer price index (PPI) increased 8.0% for the 12 months through October compared with economist expectations for 8.3% and September’s 8.4% increase, according to the Labor Department data.

The report, following last week’s smaller-than-expected increase in consumer prices for October, encouraged investors who have been closely monitoring inflation data for signs that the Federal Reserve could slow its interest rate hikes, which are aimed at dampening soaring prices.

Schamotta says the dollar likely peaked in September but he also see a risk for a short-term “sell-off in risk-sensitive currencies and a rally in the dollar if there is a U.S. government funding squeeze before year end.”
