At 12:30 GMT, the evolution of inflation in the US in August will be known. The market consensus is that the annual rate of the Consumer Price Index goes from 8.5% to 8.1%. The data has great potential to affect the market and generate volatility.

The dollar it was weakened in recent sessions, in anticipation of this event, which could reaffirm the theory of a peak in inflation, which would cause the Federal Reserve to slow down the pace of monetary tightening. However, whatever the number, it is estimated that for next week’s FOMC meeting a 75 basis point hike will remain the base case.

No power with $1730

The Monday gold hit the highest since late August and climbed to $1735, but failed to hold and returned below $1,730. This last level is key, and the 20-day moving average is also passing through there. A consolidation above would point to more gains, with a possible target in the $1745 area.
