Preview: due 12 Mar - US Feb CPI (0101-JPXN-C01)

We look for a 0.2% increase in Feb CPI to follow three straight flat outcomes as energy prices fell. Gasoline prices have corrected higher in Feb but not by enough to lift the headline above the core. We expect CPI ex food and energy to rise by 0.2 % for a sixth straight month.

Before rounding overall CPI should be marginally above 0.2% with the core marginally below, the core rate slowing from a 0.24% increase in Jan that was on the high side of trend. However, the main area of strength in Jan (a 1.1% rise in apparel) could persist. 2018 saw strong gains from apparel in both Jan and Feb.

Yr/yr growth in overall CPI should be unchanged at Jan's 19 month low of 1.6%. Yr/yr CPI ex food and energy should stand at 2.2% for the fourth straight month.
