During today's Asian trading, the US dollar declined against the euro and rose slightly against the yen after the publication of the US inflation report in May.

Consumer prices in the United States in May jumped by 5% compared to the same month last year, according to data from the Ministry of Labor. The rate of inflation accelerated from 4.2% in April and was the highest in more than 12 years-since August 2008. Analysts had forecast a 4.7% rise in May.

Meanwhile, the European Central Bank (ECB) did not change the parameters of monetary policy following the June meeting. At the same time, the regulator improved the forecast for GDP growth in the euro zone in 2021 to 4.7% from 4.1%. The inflation forecast for this year was raised to 1.9% from 1.5%.

The pound traded steadily against the dollar and fell against the euro. Pressure on the pound is exerted by the news that London and Brussels could not agree on the implementation of the protocol on Northern Ireland, which is part of the Brexit deal.

In addition, in the UK on Wednesday, 7.54 thousand new cases of coronavirus infection were recorded - the maximum daily increase since the end of February. The deterioration of the epidemiological situation may lead to a delay in the removal of the lockdown in the country, which is scheduled for June 21.

The ICE index, which tracks the dollar's performance against six currencies (euro, swiss franc, yen, canadian dollar, pound sterling and swedish krona), fell 0.07%.
