The Consumer Price Index (CPI) measures the change in the price of goods and services from the perspective of the consumer. It is a key way to measure changes in purchasing trends and inflation.

A higher than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the USD, while a lower than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the USD.

The previous reading was 3.2% worse than the expected 3.3%. The next report is due on December 12, 13:30 GMT. Its forecast stands at 3.1%.

It is the broadest measure of economic activity and the primary indicator of the economy’s health. A higher than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the GBP, while a lower than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the GBP.

The previous reading came out to be -0.2%, better than the expected 0.0%. The next report is due on December 13, 07:00 GMT. Its forecast stands at -0.1%.
