    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The GBP/USD pair has consolidated around 1.5150 ahead of the data in the US, which could show the core inflation ticked higher in November.

    Will CPI move markets?

    The data is expected to show the CPI stalled in November on a monthly basis. In annualised terms, the CPI is seen rising 0.4% from previous figure of 0.2%. The core figure is seen rising 2.0% y/y from 1.9%.

    The data could move markets, if the headline and core figure print higher than estimates or significantly lower than estimates. Moreover, it could influence the expectations of the size of the liftoff tomorrow and impact the overall demand for the US dollars.
