Here is what you need to know on Tuesday, May 28:

The US Dollar (USD) is having a hard time finding demand early Tuesday after weakening modestly against its major rivals on Monday.  Housing Price Index for March, Conference Board's Consumer Confidence Index and Dallas Fed Manufacturing Business Index for May will be featured in the US economic calendar later in the day. Several Federal Reserve (Fed) policymakers are scheduled to deliver speeches during the American trading hours.

The USD Index edged lower in the second half of the day on Monday and closed the day in negative territory. Following a three-day holiday, the benchmark 10-year US Treasury bond yield declines slightly early Tuesday and US stock index futures trade marginally higher on the day.

The heat map shows percentage changes of major currencies against each other. The base currency is picked from the left column, while the quote currency is picked from the top row. For example, if you pick the US Dollar from the left column and move along the horizontal line to the Japanese Yen, the percentage change displayed in the box will represent USD (base)/JPY (quote).

The data from Japan showed that the Corporate Service Price Index rose 2.8% on a yearly basis in April, following the 2.4% increase recorded in March. Additionally, Japan's Weighted Median Inflation Index, a key measure of the country’s trend inflation, rose 1.1% in April, slowing from a 1.3% increase in March. USD/JPY showed no reaction to these figures and was last seen moving sideways slightly below 157.00.

Economic Indicator

Consumer Confidence

The Consumer Confidence index, released on a monthly basis by the Conference Board, is a survey gauging sentiment among consumers in the United States, reflecting prevailing business conditions and likely developments for the months ahead. The report details consumer attitudes, buying intentions, vacation plans and consumer expectations for inflation, labor market, stock prices and interest rates. The data shows a picture of whether or not consumers are willing to spend money, a key factor as consumer spending is a major driver of the US economy. Generally, a high reading is bullish for the US Dollar (USD), while a low reading is bearish. Note: Because of restrictions from the Conference Board, FXStreet Economic Calendar does not provide this indicator's figures.
