Atlanta Fed Business Inflation Expectations  
Released On 11/15/2017 10:00:00 AM For Nov, 2017

Bus Infl Exp % Yr/Yr1.8 %2.0 %

Highlights
Inflation expectations remain low but are improving, up 2 tenths in November to a year-on-year 2.0 percent for the Atlanta Fed's business measure. This is the best reading since June. Last week's consumer sentiment report also showed improvement with its year-ahead reading also up 2 tenths to 2.6 percent. These improvements aren't enough to lift the outlook for inflation but they are steps in the right direction and follow isolated glimmers of strength in wages.

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
