Inflation breakdown – Not as bad as it seems

This special report will be aimed at the most current inflation print from the USA and its detailed analysis, outcome, and implications for the market.

What drove the CPI?

The table below examines what drove September’s CPI, both on a monthly and annual basis. Let’s summarize how the data ended today from the macro-calendar:

The YoY headline inflation (CPI) in September rose to 8.2%, down from the previous month’s 8.3% but more than the consensus estimated at 8.1%. The monthly rise contributed an additional 0.4% growth, thus beating the estimate of 0.2%. The one pure negative sign.

The Core PCE or a similar Core CPI is the most important (lagging) inflation indicator for the Fed. The core CPI rose to 6.6%, up from the previous month’s 6.3% and also higher than the consensus estimate of 6.5%. The monthly Core CPI is the most crucial part of the whole CPI report. It showed that MoM Core ended up up by 0.6%, the same as the previous month. This was more than the estimate of 0.5%, so it was hotter than expected.
