The price index of core personal consumption expenditures rose .1% in February which was also in line with the economist’s expectation. The YOY reading of PCE which is the annual inflation rate remained unchanged from January at 1.1%. It is the core inflation measure which Fed focuses on or targets at 2%. Although the inflation rate is well below the target, the tone of the report was encouraging and we expect economy to grow meaningfully in the coming months.
