During the U.S. session on Forex U.S. dollar rose against most currencies after the release of the inflation report and housing data.

Consumer prices continued to rise in June, but slightly slowed down compared to the previous month. This was stated in the report submitted to the Department of Labor.

According to the data, the June consumer price index rose a seasonally adjusted 0.3% after rising 0.4% in the previous month. Excluding food and energy, the index rose by 0.1% compared to 0.4% in May. Economists predicted a 0.3% growth of the overall index and a 0.2% increase in the benchmark.

In annual terms, the consumer price index rose by 2.1%, which corresponded to an increase in the previous month and was in line with expectations. Meanwhile, the core CPI rose by 1.9% per annum, the pace slowed slightly compared to May (when the index rose by 2%). Economists had expected an increase of 2.0%,

Also add that the index for personal consumption expenditures, which is the preferred measure of inflation for the Federal Reserve, rose by 1.8% per annum, while the core index (excluding food and energy) rose by 1.5%.

In turn, the volume of sales in the secondary market in the U.S. has grown significantly at the end of June, while fixing the third monthly increase in a row, which is a sign of recovery after months of decline.

We also add that the figure for May was revised upward - to 4.91 million units from 4.89 million units. Economists had expected sales to increase to 4.98 million level

"We see that the recovery in the housing market takes on a broader basis," - said Lawrence Yun, chief economist at NAR. He also pointed to an increase in purchases made by those who are first-time buyers, and highlighted the improvement in single-family housing sector sales and condominiums. But despite the growth, the market has not regained its former strength. Compared to last year, sales in June fell 2.3%.
