U.S. Inflation Rose 0.2% In April, 2.5% Over Last 12 Months


  • Headline inflation rose 0.2% in April, below the consensus estimate of 0.3%.
  • Core inflation was up 0.1% for the month and has increased 2.1% over the last 12 months. That’s the definition of ‘moderate inflation.’
  • Non-seasonally adjusted inflation was up 0.4% in April, meaning holders of TIPS will see principal balances rise 0.4% in June.
