Consumer Price Index (CPI)

The CPI (known as the Consumer Price Index) is an indicator on inflation in the economy. It is a basket of standardized goods in the economy. The CPI was up .5% in Jan 2023 which adjust to 6.4% over the last 12 months. This says that you are paying 6.4% more for your basic everyday items. That is inflation. Inflation eats away at your spending power unless as you get a raise. Inflation is expected in a growing economy but high inflation is negative. The easiest way to control inflation is to raise interest rates. The FED is looking at many factors such as CPI, PPI, Jobs, Housing starts and much more. The growth or decline of the CPI can have a significant impact on the markets. However if you are a long-term investor, you should be able to weather the storm.
