United States CPI results will move the dollar!

United States’ Bureau of Labor Statistics will release monthly CPI and core CPI on September 14, 15:30 GMT+3.

What will happen?

United States’ Bureau of Labor Statistics will release monthly CPI and core CPI on September 14, 15:30 GMT+3. The Consumer Price Index measures the average change in prices that consumers pay for a basket of goods and services. The CPI statistics cover a variety of individuals with different incomes, including retirees, but does not include certain populations, such as patients of mental hospitals.

Why is it important?

 Investors, traders, banks, and governments are watching CPI data because it is the most widely used measure of inflation. If the inflation rate is high (or higher than expected), banks will probably raise interest rates in order to slow inflation. Almost every release of CPI has been accompanied by massive movements in USD-related assets and USD currency pairs.
