Highlights
Energy may be high and metals may be rising on tariffs, but year-ahead inflation expectations at the business level remain unchanged at 2.1 percent. Yet this reading, like most inflation data, is in fact trending incrementally higher, moving from the 1.7 percent rate to just over 2 percent over the last year. Watch for the consumer price report on Thursday's calendar.

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
