For the Dollar:
JOLT’s job openings for June get things going. With increased sensitivity to labor market numbers, expect interest in the June openings.
The focus will then shift to inflation and jobless claims on Thursday, with both sets of numbers key.
At the end of the week, consumer sentiment figures for August will also draw attention.
On the monetary policy front, expect plenty of sensitivity to any FOMC member chatter in the week.
In the week ending 6th August, the Dollar Spot Index rose by 0.68% to 92.800.
For the EUR:
It’s a busy week on the economic data front.
German trade data for June will be in focus on Monday.
The focus will then shift to ZEW Economic Sentiment figures for Germany and the Eurozone on Tuesday.
In the 2nd half of the week, industrial production and trade data for the Eurozone wrap things up.
Finalized inflation figures for France, Germany, and Italy are also out in the week but should have a muted impact on the markets.
For the week, the EUR fell by 0.91% to $1.1762.
For the Pound:
It’s a busy week ahead on the economic calendar.
2nd quarter GDP, trade, industrial production, and manufacturing production figures are due out on Thursday.
Expect the GDP and production figures to be key.
With the number of daily COVID-19 cases in decline last week, a continued downtrend would also be positive for the Pound.
The Pound ended the week down by 0.23% to $1.3872.
For the Loonie:
It’s a particularly quiet week ahead on the economic calendar.
There were no material stats due out of Canada to provide the Loonie with direction.
A lack of stats will leave the Loonie in the hands of market risk sentiment and crude oil prices in the week.
The Loonie ended the week down 0.63% to C$1.2554 against the U.S Dollar.
