The US currency continues to lose ground against a basket of world currencies. The dollar index (#DX) has updated key lows. In July, the CB consumer confidence index in the US slowed down from 98.3 to 92.6. Demand for the US dollar is still low amid growing doubts about a rapid economic recovery due to the outbreak in new cases of coronavirus in the United States.

At the moment, the greenback is stable. Financial market participants have taken a wait-and-see attitude before the Fed decision. It is expected that the regulator will keep the key marks of monetary policy at the same level. We recommend paying attention to the comments by the representatives of the Central Bank.

The “black gold” prices have been growing. At the moment, futures for the WTI crude oil are testing the $41.45 mark per barrel. We recommend paying attention to the EIA crude oil inventories at 17:30 (GMT+3:00).
