In October, the consumer price index in the United States rose by 6.2% - a record value since November 1990. Compared to September, the rate of price growth accelerated by 0.8%, and core inflation, which does not take into account volatile energy and food prices, accelerated to 4.6% and also renewed its maximum in 30 years. US inflation is expected to continue to accelerate in the coming months on the back of housing, utilities, energy and car prices.
Experts attribute the reason for the strengthening of the dollar to an increase in the spread between US and German government bonds, as well as a revision of expectations for an increase in the US FRS rate. At such rates of inflation growth, the regulator may raise rates ahead of its own forecast.
