TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The U.S. dollar was stable on Thursday after October consumer price inflation was greater than expected and Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell offered an optimistic outlook for the economy, further solidifying the case for the central bank to pause its monetary easing cycle.

Expectations for an interest rate cut do not rise above 30% before July 2020, according to CME Group’s FedWatch tool. And the slim chances of a cut in the months prior on Wednesday became slimmer.

U.S. consumer prices jumped by the most in seven months in October, a report from the Labor Department on Wednesday showed, as the cost of healthcare surged by the most in more than three years. The Fed uses interest rate hikes to rein in inflation, making a near-term cut slightly less likely.
