Japanese Yen slips lower from multi-year highs, caution seen ahead of Fed policy decision
Chart - Courtesy Trading View
A rebound in the positive market sentiment has undermined demand for the US dollar.
On the data front, US PPI matched 0.8% MoM forecasts, also easing to 10.8% YoY figures versus 10.9% expected and prior readouts.
Further, core PPI (ex Food & Energy), dropped below 8.6% YoY forecasts to 8.3%, data released on Tuesday showed.
Further, markets remain cautious and refrain from placing any aggressive bets ahead of the Fed policy decision.
The Federal Reserve is expected to remain on the extremely hawkish side amid soaring inflation.
That said, signs of exhaustion were displayed by the US dollar index DXY, as clouds of uncertain Fed policy loom again.
