Wednesday News
  • Wednesday’s session will be marked by CPI data from the US. Publication at 1:30 pm BST.
  • The CPI data offers a chance for a dovish surprise. The baseline y/y reading is expected to indicate a decline in the rate of price growth to 3.6% against 3.8% in March. However, the distribution of votes in this case is characterized by a sizable standard deviation of the distribution of votes, so watch out for a possible upward or downward surprise. The overall outcome of the report will largely depend on price creation in the rental and automobile sectors.
