Highlights
Like so many indicators that track sentiment, the Atlanta Fed's inflation expectations report appears to be topping out after a post-election surge. Year-ahead expectations are at 2.0 percent this month vs 2.1 percent in January and December. This reading in October was all the way back at 1.7 percent. For the doves on the FOMC, today's report offers a marginal counter balance to the strength seen in this week's producer and consumer price reports.

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
