Key Quotes

“We expect core inflation to stay unchanged at 2.3% y/y. It is clearly above the Fed's target but note that this is based on the PCE inflation number, which is a bit lower than CPI at present. However, inflation pressure generally seems to be rising in the US, as there are bottlenecks in the labour market and companies report very strong demand growth.”

US initial jobless claims are also being released and are expected to continue to hover around record lows.”
