“Inflation should fade into 2022 and 2023” – ECB Lagarde
Short-term, CPI data came out this morning, showing consumer prices are rising as the economy reopens. The CPI report was expected to show prices rose another 0.4% in May, pushing annual inflation above April’s 4.2%, already the highest in more than a decade. Futures are responding by moving higher going into the opening bell.
