US Building Permits and New Home Sales outperformed expectations, but the Conference Board’s consumer confidence index dropped to its lowest point since July 2022, which limited the US Dollar’s gains.

The safe-haven US Dollar gained as robust housing data offered some reprieve, indicating that the rising rates environment in the United States is yet to deliver a crippling blow. Data from the Census Bureau revealed that US Building Permits and New Home Sales outperformed expectations, coming in at 1.430 million and 683,000, respectively, surpassing forecasts of 1.413 million and 630,000. Despite the positive data, the Conference Board’s consumer confidence index took a hit, plunging to 101.3, its lowest point since July 2022. This tepid consumer sentiment weighed on the US Dollar, limiting its gains in the market.

On Tuesday, the Euro experienced a significant drop of 0.75% against the U.S. dollar, reaching $1.0975.
