Inflation ticks up in September
Consumer prices inched up 0.1% month-on-month in September, following August’s 0.2% increase. The print reflected higher prices for education, clothing and footwear and transport, which more than offset by lower prices for restaurant and hotels and recreation and culture—due to seasonal factors.
Inflation ticked up to 2.9% in September from August’s 2.8%, matching July’s reading which had marked the highest reading in 15-months. Meanwhile, harmonized inflation remained stable at August’s 3.0%, a near seven-year high, while annual average inflation remained dipped from 2.3% to 2.2% in September.
FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists expect inflation to average 2.5% in 2019, which is unchanged from last month’s estimate, and 2.3% in 2020.
