Readers can find FX Street's proprietary deviation impact map of the event below and as observed, the reaction in case of a relative deviation of +0.98 to -1.25 in the core CPI print is likely to be in the range of 24-26 pips during the first 15-minutes and could stretch to around 68-71 pips in the following 4-hours.

About the US CPI

The purchasing power of USD is dragged down by inflation. The CPI is a key indicator to measure inflation and changes in purchasing trends. Generally speaking, a high reading is seen as positive (or bullish) for the USD, while a low reading is seen as negative (or Bearish).
