Weakness in U.S. Dollar Support the EUR/USD
On Wednesday, the US dollar index, which calculates the greenback's strength versus a basket of six major currencies, plummeted to a low of 94.0, owing to concerns about inflation. The benchmark 10-year Treasury yield fell to 1.530 percent, putting additional pressure on the US dollar and driving up yellow metal prices.
On the data front, the Consumer Price Index for September rose to 0.4 percent at 17:30 GMT, beating expectations of 0.3 percent, bolstering the US dollar, which capped additional advances in the yellow metal. The core CPI stayed unchanged at 0.2 percent, as expected.
According to the Federal Reserve's September policy meeting minutes, the central bank could begin tapering its crisis-era economic stimulus in mid-November or mid-December. They were, however, split on how much of a threat high inflation poses and how quickly interest rates should be raised in response.
According to inflation statistics issued on Wednesday, higher prices were not transient, and predictions of interest rate hikes sooner than expected surged amid these anxieties, keeping the yellow metal supported on Wednesday.
