Gold Rallies On More Bargain Hunting, Technical Buying (based on the article)
Trading News Events: U.S. Consumer Price Index (based on the article)
A marked pickup in the U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) may heighten the
appeal of the dollar and spark a further decline in EUR/USD as it puts
increased pressure on the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) to
implement higher borrowing-costs in 2016.
Why Is This Event Important:
Signs of stronger price growth may encourage the Fed to further
normalize monetary policy over the coming months especially as the U.S.
economy approaches ‘full-employment,’ while Chair Janet remains
confident in achieving the 2% inflation target over the policy horizon.
Nevertheless, waning confidence paired with the slowdown in
private-sector activity may drag on price growth, and a dismal
development may produce near-term headwinds for the greenback as market
participants push out bets for the next Fed rate-hike.

[USD - CPI] = Change in the price of goods and services purchased by consumers.
"The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) was unchanged in January on a seasonally adjusted basis, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Over the last 12 months, the all items index increased 1.4 percent before seasonal adjustment.
An increase in the index for all items less food and energy offset a decline in the energy index to lead to the seasonally adjusted all items index being unchanged. The energy index fell 2.8 percent as all of its major component indexes declined. The index for all items less food and energy rose 0.3 percent in January. The increase was broad-based, with most of the major components rising, but increases in the indexes for shelter and medical care were the largest contributors."
