Month over Month0.5 %-0.2 %-0.1 %
Year over Year0.9 %0.9 %1.0 %

Highlights
Consumer prices provisionally dipped 0.1 percent on the month in September. This was rather less than the seasonal norm and enough to nudge the annual inflation rate a tick higher to 1.0 percent, its strongest reading since April.

The flash HICP was also fell a monthly 0.1 percent, lifting its yearly rate from 1.0 percent to 1.1 percent.

The modest monthly acceleration in the annual CPI rate reflected mainly stronger rates in food (1.0 percent after 0.6 percent) and energy (5.1 percent after 4.8 percent). Deflation in manufactured goods eased from minus 0.7 percent to minus 0.4 percent but inflation in services slipped a tick to 1.1 percent.

In line with yesterday's German CPI data, today's French inflation update makes for some downside risk to the full Eurozone underlying flash HICP print, due later this morning.

Definition
The consumer price index (CPI) is a measure of the average price level of a fixed basket of goods and services purchased by consumers. Monthly and annual changes in the CPI represent the main rates of inflation. The national CPI is released alongside the HICP, Eurostat's harmonized measure of consumer prices. A flash estimate was released for the first time in January 2016 and is now published towards the end of each reference month.  Why Investors Care
