About CPI (QoQ) (New Zealand)
A key measurement of inflation, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) influences public sentiment and monetary policy of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) toward the Kiwi. It measures the pricing changes of a fixed basket of goods and services over time.Derived by Statistics New Zealand, the CPI (QoQ) is released four times per year. Strong CPI values are typically viewed as bullish for the NZD, while lagging values are negative. In instances where the CPI is strong, the RBNZ is more likely to tighten monetary policy to control inflationary concerns facing the NZD.
