Wednesday preview: US CPI, UK GDP in focus

by | Sep 12, 2023

(Sharecast News) – The market spotlight in the middle of the week will be squarely on the latest U.S. consumer price data.
Headline consumer price inflation is expected to have picked up from 3.2% in annual terms for the month of July to 3.6% in August due to rising energy quotes.

At the core level on the other hand, consensus is that CPI gains slowed by four tenths of a percentage point to 4.3%.

According to Fed funds futures, the U.S. central bank is likely done with interest rate hikes, but not all economists are yet convinced.

Against that backdrop, at 0700 BST the Office for National Statistics is expected to report that UK gross domestic product flatlined in July in month-on-month terms.

On the other side of the Channel, investors’ attention will be on euro area industrial production figures for the month of July.
