U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI)Deltafx Admin 15 January 2023
The Consumer Price Index (CPI) measures changes in the prices of goods and services, excluding food and energy. This index measures the change in prices from the consumer’s point of view. This is an important method for measuring changes in purchasing power and inflation trends.
A higher than expected reading should be considered positive/bullish for the USD, while a lower than expected reading should be considered negative/bearish for the USD.
