Meanwhile, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said that the PPI readings were higher than expected. He added that policymakers �need to be patient and let restrictive policy do its work.� Investors now shift focus to US CPI report this week. The dollar index dumped aside higher PPI data and added to losses at 104.82 alongside fall in treasury yields. Among basket currencies, EURUSD and GBPUSD are quoting higher by 0.06% at $1.0842 and $1.2600 respectively.
