Talking Points:

- Core PCE rose by 1.6% YoY in September, in line with estimates as inflation remains sluggish

- Personal spending ticks slightly above 0.9% expectation, at 1.0% last month

- Personal income falls in line with estimates

- See the DailyFX Economic Calendar for upcoming economic data and for a schedule of live coverage see the DailyFX Webinar Calendar.

US inflation data is helping keep the US Dollar within a narrow range this morning. The PCE deflators track overall prices changes in goods and services that are purchased by consumers, making it the Fed’s preferred gauge of inflation.

Unfortunately, again, PCE failed to reach their +2% target. In September, PCE YoY was +1.6% and core PCE was +1.3. Both figures fell in line with market expectations. Personal income was up +0.4% also in line with expectations. Notably, spending rose by +1.0% (YoY) versus +0.9% estimated.

Despite low-growth in wages the Fed remains on track to raise interest rates in December. According to CME’s FedWatch Tool, the chances of a rate hike in December are at around 98%.

- USD Personal Spending (SEP): +1.0% versus 0.9% expected, from +0.1% previous

- USD Real Personal Spending (SEP): 0.6% versus 0.5% expected, from -0.1% previous

- USD PCE Core (YoY) (SEP): +1.3% as expected, from 1.3% previous
