U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) numbers for May 2023 were issued by the Bureau of Labour Statistics on Tuesday. The authorities said that the CPI for all urban consumers grew 0.1% in May after adjusting for seasonal factors and increased by 4% over the previous 12 months. As a result, the inflation numbers for the month were within expectations, and the annual rate of 4% is the lowest it’s been in roughly two years.

Price increases of 0.1% were anticipated by market players, a decrease from the 0.4% increase seen in April 2023. However, the market is expecting the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) will decide to suspend rate hikes at their meeting on June 14, 2023.
