Morning Report – Wednesday 13th April
FTSE to open at 7,562 (-15 pts)
Yesterday’s US inflation data showed consumer prices for March had increased by the most in 16 years – as the war in Ukraine caused a spike in energy prices.
However, monthly underlying inflation pressures moderated as US goods prices, excluding food and energy, dropped by the most in two years.
While this morning’s UK inflation data saw consumer prices increase at an annual rate of 7% – a fresh 30-year high, up from 6.2% in February and well above the 0.7% recorded in March 2021.
This inflation rate is more than three-times the BoE’s target and higher than the rate of “around 6%” that it forecast at its last meeting.
