Forex Flash: Canada CPI to increase by 0.8% (MoM) in February – TD Securities

TD Securities analysts expect a “dramatic jump in energy prices to have reversed the steady slide in headline CPI inflation, with the all-items price index forecast to have increased by 0.8% m/m in February, a tad higher than the 0.7% consensus expectation”. “On a year-ago basis, total CPI inflation is forecast to increase to 0.8%, matching the pace set through the end of 2012.
