Summary

  • Headline inflation, which was higher than expected in November, has now topped 2.0% for the first time since November 2018.
  • Core inflation matched expectations but remained moderately high at 2.3% year-over-year.
  • Non-seasonally adjusted inflation declined 0.05%, meaning principal balances for all TIPS will decline slightly in January.
