Thailand's April CPI printed comfortably above estimates, as inflation came in at +3.41% Y/Y after registering at -0.08% in March. Headline CPI hasn't reached such levels since Dec 2012. The core metric picked up to +0.30% Y/Y from 0.09%. The baht has shown little in the way of immediate reaction so far and USD/THB last sits at THB31.175, as we await the monetary policy decision from the BoT.
