Previous: 3.2% | Forecast: 3.1%


US inflation fell to 3.2% in October, the first declinein four months, as fuel prices dropped. The figure was also marginally below expectations of 3.3%.


Meanwhile, core inflation dipped from 4.1% to 4 % on a year-on-year basis, and rose 0.2% month on month. Some big US companies have reported seeing encouraging signs on price pressures


Some suspect that the slowdown in inflation could stall given stronger than expected growth so far this year, but Powell said last month the chance of a soft landing had slimmed with higher-for-longer interest rates.
