A gauge of the dollar's performance against a basket of six major peers fell 0.1 percent at 92.970, and is poised to loss 0.9 percent this week.

  • The dollar is turning in a mixed performance against its major rivals Thursday afternoon, but is little changed overall. Weekly jobless claims came in better than expected this morning, while producer prices were in line with expectations. Traders are looking forward to the release of the consumer price index tomorrow morning, as well as retail sales and consumer sentiment.

  • The Czech central bank is likely to raise its interest rate by 25 basis points at its next meeting in early November, as inflation accelerated to a five-year high in September, Liam Carson, an economist at Capital Economics, said. Headline inflation rose to 2.7 percent in September from 2.5 percent in August, data from the Czech Statistical Office showed on October 9. "The pick-up in inflation was mainly driven by three factors," the economist observed. First, food inflation edged up from 5.6 percent to 5.7 percent. Second, fuel inflation rose further on the back of last month's jump in global oil prices. Third, and most importantly, it appears that core inflation continued to rise, the economist said. The Czech National Bank's adjusted inflation series is the measure of core inflation that the Monetary Policy Committee tracks most closely. Although September's core inflation data has not yet been released, using the the recent CPI figures, Capital Economics est..
