US: Annual core CPI unchanged at 2.3% in December as expected

  • Annual core CPI in US came in at 2.3% in December to match analysts' forecasts.

Inflation in the United States, as measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI), rose to 2.3% on a yearly basis in December from 2.1%, the monthly data published by the United States (US) Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) showed on Tuesday. This reading came in line with analysts' estimates.

The US Dollar Index largely ignored these figures and was last up 0.15% on the day at 97.52.
