Federal Reserve officials will be closely watch the U.S March CPI data at 0830ET, with many observers looking for a further spike higher on the the February outturn. Expectations are for a jump in headline CPI to 2.5% y/y -- close to where the Fed is targeting for a medium-term average rate -- well above the 1.7% y/y recorded in February. Ex-food and energy may see a slightly less extreme jump, with the median forecast looking for a jump to 1.5% y/y from last month's 1.3% y/y.
However, whatever the number, market participants just hope it is released in a more orderly fashion than Friday's factory gate price data.
