    FXStreet (Delhi) – Prashant Newnaha, Rates Strategist at TD Securities, suggests that the
    highlight of today’s session is Sep CPI and we are looking for -0.2%/m in the headline index via lower gasoline prices, while core should advance by +0.1%/m.

    Key Quotes

    “We look for annual headline inflation to slip into negative territory (+0.2% to -0.1%/y) while core inflation should hold firm at +1.8%/y (all as mkt expects).”

    “While CPI is the highlight, don’t ignore initial jobless claims for w/end Oct 10 where we attach considerable downside to mkt 263-270K and see a modest improvement from 263K to 260K via favourable seasonals.”

    “We also see the Empire Manufacturing Index (mkt -8.0) and the Philli Fed Index (mkt -2.0), both for October.”
