London (PRWEB UK) 19 March 2013
Today the UK announced its CPI reading. This may affect the inflation rate and in turn the likelihood of further stimulus.
Why is it important for FX trading?
The UK has held back on stimulus as inflationary pressure has always been a cause for concern. A fall in inflation could open the door for more stimulus, although inflationary pressures could also weaken sterling. Something of great interest to all FX traders.
What is the Consumer Price Index (CPI)?
CPI is a measure of the change over time in the prices consumers pay for a selected basket of goods and services. The government adjusts interest rates based on CPI.
The ‘market basket’ includes 600 items that representative of typical household spending, such as housing, clothes and food, based on prices measured from 120,000 different retail outlets.
