Wednesday, 11 March 2020 19:51 WIB | CPI Amerika Ekonomi AS

The US Core Consumer Price Index has risen by 2.4% in February, above 2.3% that was on the cards. On a monthly basis, underlying prices rose by 0.2% as expected. Headline inflation rose by 0.1% monthly and 2.3% yearly, both exceeding estimates.
