The EUR/USD price has been dropping in the past few days as focus shifts to the upcoming FOMC minutes. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) will publish the latest producer price index (PPI) data.

Economists expect the data to show that the headline PPI rose from -0.1% to 0.2% in September. On a year-on-year basis, analysts expect that the PPI dropped from 8.7% to 8.4%.

Excluding the volatile food and energy products, analysts expect that PPI rose by 7.3% and by 0.3% on a MoM basis. These numbers will come a day ahead of the official consumer inflation data. Economists believe that inflation eased slightly in September.

On a positive side, data published by the New York Fed said that consumer expectations dropped to 5.4%, which was the lowest figure this year. The figure peaked at 6.8% in June and has been falling as the average gas price eased. However, the survey showed that household spending will increase by 6% in 2023, a steep decline from the previous estimate of 7.8%.

The EUR/USD pair will react to the upcoming Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) minutes that will come out on Wednesday. These minutes are expected to show that the bank will continue hiking interest rates in the coming months. Economists believe that the bank will hike rates by 75 basis points in November followed by 0.50% in December.

The other important data to watch on Wednsday will be the upcoming mortgage data, European industrial production data and a speech by Christine Lagarde.
