Exchanges rallied in anticipation of the release of U.S. inflation data

The main US and European stock indices finished Monday in the green zone. The return of risk appetite among players is due to the optimistic forecast for U.S. inflation in August - analysts expect it to decline to 8.1% from 8.5% recorded in July. Against this background, the Dow Jones rose 0.71%, the S&P 500 rose 1.06%, the NASDAQ gained 1.27%. In Europe DAX (Germany) added 2.4%, FTSE 100 (Great Britain) gained 1.66%, CAC 40 (France) - 1.95%.

Simultaneously with the return of risk sentiment, the dollar continued to fall - during the day its index dropped below 107 points. Gold grew for the second day in a row amid weaker American currency, gaining 0.39% to $1,735.40 per troy ounce.

The publication of inflation data in the United States is expected today at 15:30 Moscow time. Players expect that a decline in its rate may prompt the Federal Reserve to moderate its monetary policy.
