“We expect the non-core segment to be driven by a modest rebound in the energy segment on the back of a 1.5% m/m rise in gasoline prices.”

“Separately, core inflation should remain steady at 2.1% y/y (mkt 2.1%), reflecting a firm 0.2% m/m advance (mkt 0.2%). Core prices should be supported by both a 0.2% m/m increase in core services inflation and new gain in core goods at 0.2%. We anticipate OER to remain largely steady at 0.3% m/m and for the ex-shelter segment to slow marginally on a monthly basis.”
