◽️ Due to the confusion after the latest inflation report (CPI, PPI), the market’s attention will be on economic growth data and Home sales. the housing sector is important for the economy that will be monitored for possible signs of recession.

◽️ July building permits and construction starts will be released on Tuesday and existing home sales on Thursday.

◽️ Despite intensifying fears of a recession due to negative pressure countering declining bond yields, recent positive data have had a complex effect on reducing risk-taking sentiment.

The dollar, however, may see a more limited decline as investors await the minutes of the Fed’s meeting to adjust their decision based on the Federal Reserve’s stance in September.
