Read this Term index moved lower in early trading and in the process moved down to test its rising 100 hour moving average (blue line in the chart above). That moving average currently comes in at 11297.97.

On the topside, the high price for the day in the 1st hour of trading, was able to get above the 200 hour moving average at 11442.18. The high price reached 11483.17 but could not sustain upside momentum.

The current prices trading between those 2 moving averages with the 100 hour moving average at 11297.98 and the 200 hour moving average at 11442.20. Buyers and sellers are battling it out with the next shove tilting the bias in the direction of the moving average break.

Remember tomorrow, the CPI data is expected to show an oversize 1.1% gain. That is a hard number to swallow and should keep the Fed focused on 75 basis points after July 27 meeting, and keep a lid on the stocks in the process.

Inflation

Inflation is defined as a quantitative measure of the rate in which the average price level of goods and services in an economy or country increases over a period of time. It is the rise in the general level of prices where a given currency effectively buys less than it did in prior periods.In terms of assessing the strength or currencies, and by extension foreign exchange, inflation or measures of it are extremely influential. Inflation stems from the overall creation of money. This money is measured by the level of the total money supply of a specific currency, for example the US dollar, which is constantly increasing. However, an increase in the money supply does not necessarily mean that there is inflation. What leads to inflation is a faster increase in the money supply in relation to the wealth produced (measured with GDP). As such, this generates pressure of demand on a supply that does not increase at the same rate. The consumer price index then increases, generating inflation.How Does Inflation Affect Forex?The level of inflation has a direct impact on the exchange rate between two currencies on several levels.This includes purchasing power parity, which attempts to compare different purchasing powers of each country according to the general price level. In doing so, this makes it possible to determine the country with the most expensive cost of living.The currency with the higher inflation rate consequently loses value and depreciates, while the currency with the lower inflation rate appreciates on the forex market.Interest rates are also impacted. Inflation rates that are too high push interest rates up, which has the effect of depreciating the currency on foreign exchange. Conversely, inflation that is too low (or deflation) pushes interest rates down, which has the effect of appreciating the currency on the forex market.
