#dollar #inflation


USD held gains Thursday, supported by higher Treasury yields after a surprisingly strong rise in US consumer prices fueled fears about an increase in inflationary pressure.

Traders will now turn attention to US weekly jobless claims due later Thursday and retail sales numbers Friday for guidance on whether upward pressure on prices will persist.
