Meanwhile, US President Joe Biden has been able to restore the situation and talks began again on Sunday. This week, several important US macroeconomic data will be released and could have big impact on the US Dollar, withPMI numbers on Tuesday and Durable Goods and the PCE Price Index, which is the Fed’s preferred inflation metric, on Friday, leading the way.
