What's more is that the core rate of inflation is projected to print 2.2% for the fourth consecutive month, and signs of sticky price growth may spark a bullish reaction in the U.S. dollar as it put pressure on the Federal Reserve to bring back the hawkish forward-guidance for monetary policy.

Updates to the U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) showed the headline reading narrowing to 1.6% from 1.9% per annum in December, while the core rate of inflation unexpectedly held steady at 2.2% for the third consecutive month in January.
