    Post Consumer Price Index

    Is it the best inflation indicator?
    Perhaps for the core inflation but does it includes food and energy ?

    I'm still in the transitory camp. Lumber getting smashed, next stop 800. Yields lower today too.

    I don't get the lower yields, but that's not surprising. Bonds always seem to go in the opposite direction than I suspect they will.

    Used auto prices accounted for 23% of the move. Probably mostly due to low interest rates + stimulus payments + more money with everything shutdown + chip shortage. Very similar to housing right now, just a lack of inventory, but auto inventory is much easier to ramp up than housing inventory.

    CPI: July consumer prices jump 5.4%, but core inflation rises less than expected

    Prices that Americans pay for everyday goods and services continued their acceleration in July, but about where economists had expected.

    Excluding energy and food, CPI rose by 0.3% last month, shy of economist expectations of a 0.4% increase and well below June’s rise of 0.9%.

    Used car prices, which rose rapidly between April and June, rose just 0.2% in July after a climb of more than 10% in the prior month.

    Consumer prices rise more than expected as energy costs surge

    KEY POINTS

    Consumer prices overall rose 0.4% in September, pushing the year-over-year gain to 5.4%.

    Excluding food and energy, the gain was just 0.2% and 4% respectively.

    Energy and food prices climbed, while used car prices, which had been a central story in the inflation picture this year, declined.
