Janet Yellen’s comments on Friday rallied the DXY Dollar Index by 0.6% after she said that it would be appropriate to raise rates in the “coming months”. Market probability pricing for a July rate rise lifted to 53.8%, but this looks set to break substantially higher if US data doesn’t disappoint this week. The US Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE) inflation number on Tuesday, ISM Manufacturing PMI on Wednesday and the Non-Farm Payrolls release on Friday are going to be the biggest releases.
