Inflation was worse than anticipated for the fourth straight month, according to data released Wednesday (10/04). The consumer price index was 3.5% in March 2023 above February’s 3.2% and hotter than consensus economist estimates of 3.4%. Core inflation, which excludes the volatile food and energy components, exceeded expectations at 3.8%, surpassing the forecast of 3.7%.

At their March meeting, Federal Reserve officials voiced concerns that inflation was not declining rapidly enough. FOMC members decided to maintain the wording in the after-meeting statement stating that they would refrain from lowering interest rates until they were more assured that inflation was consistently heading towards the central bank's 2% annual goal.

The producer price index, which measures inflation at the wholesale level, rose by 0.2% for the month, slightly below the Dow Jones consensus estimate of 0.3%. However, on a 12-month basis, the PPI increased by 2.1%, marking the largest gain since April 2023. This suggests there are pressures in the supply chain that could keep inflation high. Additionally, initial filings for jobless benefits dropped to 211,000 and lower than the estimated 217,000.
