Could CPI data help the US30 confirm a continuation?

Hi, and welcome to today’s update. In today’s video update, we’re looking at the US30 and wondering if today’s CPI could break the consolidation deadlock we are currently seeing price sitting in.

Price continues to be held in an ascending triangle pattern, and in uptrends, these are typically seen as continuation patterns. We can clearly see that the price remains in an uptrend, so if we see better than expected CPI data today, could this be a driver that sets off buyers? Better than expected data could tell the market that peak inflation could be here and that the rates could move into a holding phase or at least see a smaller increase.

But if we see worse than expected data, this could set the pattern up to fail, and we could see a new break lower. For now, we will look for the current trend to remain in play until we see further price action telling us otherwise.

US CPI data is due out at 8:30 am EST. Good trading, and enjoy your Wednesday.
