Chart of the day - USDCAD (10.06.2022)

10:53 AM June 10, 2022

US CPI report for May is a key macro release of the day. While median consensus among economists is for the headline price growth to stay unchanged at 8.3% YoY, there were reports saying that White House is actually expectating a higher reading as high oil prices start to be reflected more at the pump. Core gauge is expected to decelerate below 6% YoY. Nevertheless, those are still high readings and even a slowdown in core price growth will not discourage Fed from delivering another rate hike next week, most like a 50 basis point hike.

Apart from the US CPI report for May, traders will also be offered a jobs report from Canada, which will be released at 1:30 pm BST as well. Market expects an employment gain of 29.5k in May, almost double that from April, and the unemployment rate to stay unchanged at 5.2%.
