Highlights
Consumer prices provisionally fell 0.2 percent on the month in September. This put the annual inflation rate at 2.2 percent, down just a tick versus its final August mark and its first decline since February.

The flash HICP largely followed suit, also slipping 0.2 percent on the month for a yearly gain of 2.5 percent, similarly 0.1 percentage points below last time.

The dip in the annual CPI rate reflected some easing in both manufactured goods (minus 0.2 percent after minus 0.1 percent), where prices are still falling on the year, and, more significantly, services (1.1 percent after 1.3 percent). Food (2.8 percent after 2.2 percent) provided a useful boost but energy (12.8 percent after 13.0 percent) subtracted slightly. The implications are that core inflation was weaker than in August (0.9 percent).

The provisional September data leave intact a still soft picture of French underlying inflation.

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
