US Dollar in Focus: Will the US CPI give final cues for Fed meeting?

The US dollar appreciated by almost 1 percent against the Japanese yen. Investors are keeping their powder dry ahead of the FOMC on Wednesday. The US dollar rate remains at 104 and has more room to rise.

The US dollar index, which tracks rates against six other currencies, rose 0.21% to 104.206. US crude oil prices were broadly lower  early  Monday morning as markets looked ahead to a key two-day Federal Reserve meeting later this week. 

Gold prices fell on Monday amid a stronger US dollar as investors awaited several key central bank meetings this week and US inflation data  for further clarity on  interest rates.

 MCX gold futures were down 0.83% at 61574 points. Silver fell 0.86% to 73030. Copper fell 1.07% to 714. Crude oil fell to 5,933, down 0.05%. Natural gas fell 8.79% to 198.10.
