U.K. CPI & Core CPI Data
U.K. will publish CPI, core CPI, PPI input, PPI out and many other relevant data around 0600 GMT/1130 IST. 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 for the GBP, while a lower than expected reading should be taken as negative for the GBP. As multiple data are releasing at the same time and in case of mixed data, market may create volatility in the GBP counterparts.
Let’s see how GBP has reacted during the previous data release:
