Highlights
Consumer prices were surprisingly robust in October. A provisional 0.2 percent monthly rise put the annual CPI rate at 2.5 percent, up from the final 2.3 percent in September and the highest growth rate since September 2008.

The flash HICP rose by 0.1 percent, boosting the yearly rate by 0.2 percentage points to 2.4 percent.

Much of the CPI annual gain was attributable to energy, which climbed 1.1 percentage points to an 8.9 percent annual rate. Food was down 0.9 percentage points to 1.9 percent, with overall goods inflation rising 0.1 percentage points to 3.2 percent year-on-year.

Services jumped 0.3 percentage points to 1.8 percent year-on-year. Rent, excluding utilities, rose 0.1 percentage points to 1.6 percent.

Today's German inflation update suggests that higher wages are increasingly having an impact on consumer prices.

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 provide widely used measures of inflation. A provisional estimate, with limited detail, is released about two weeks before the final data are reported.  Why Investors Care
