Update Economic USA Inflation PPI
The Federal Reserve is anxious to see some level of inflationary pressure, but unfortunately for Chairman Yellen, this does not appear to be on the horizon. Producer prices as measured by the PPI remains contained at 2.6% year-over-year (YOY), short of placing any upward pressure on the Consumer Price Index (CPI). Generally, increases in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) occur shortly after inflationary signs appear in the PPI.
