Morning, Traders!
It is Thursday the 31st of August, here are some things to look out for today.

This morning, the US dollar outperformed the euro after weaker US data was interpreted as indicating a soft landing, which could aid the Federal Reserve in reversing its rate-hiking path. In Europe, the acceleration of inflation in some countries has raised fears of stagflation.

According to yesterday's release of the revised Q2 GDP numbers, the US economy made less progress than expected in the fourth quarter, while data showed that employment growth was slowing.
