Atlanta Fed Business Inflation Expectations  
Released On 6/13/2018 10:00:00 AM For Jun, 2018
PriorActual
Bus Infl Exp % Yr/Yr2.0 %2.1 %

Highlights
Despite tariffs and evaporating labor slack, inflation expectations at the business level remain subdued, up only 1 tenth in June to 2.1 percent. Yet this index, like inflation expectations at the consumer level, is trending marginally higher with this particular reading coming off a 7-year high at 2.3 percent in March. Watch for the FOMC later today and whether Fed policy makers upgrade their assessment of inflation expectations which in prior statements was described as unchanged.

Definition
The Atlanta Fed's Business Inflation Expectations survey provides a monthly measure of year-ahead inflation expectations and inflation uncertainty from the perspective of firms. The survey also provides a monthly gauge of firms' current sales, profit margins, and unit cost changes.  Why Investors Care
