Important upcoming events and publications for January 29 (GMT):
14:00 U.S. Case/Shiller House price index for the 20 largest metropolitan regions is a very reliable, albeit quite lagging indicator. The data for November will be released today, and it is expected the index to maintain the annual growth rate at 5.0% after seven months of decline from 6.8%. The further slowdown can put pressure on #USD, as the attention of market participants will switch to signs of slowing growth.
15:00 U.S. Consumer Confidence indicator is expected to continue its decline after multi-year peak levels it reached at the end of the year. On average, market analysts are expected the index to drop from 128.1 to 125.0. A sharper drop could have significant pressure on #USD, stressing that the peak of the growth rate was left behind. The higher performance, on the other hand, can inspire markets to buy dollar assets.
