About CPI (YoY) (U.K.)
U.K. CPI (MoM) is a primary measurement of inflationary pressures facing the GBP. It is derived and presented by the National Statistics Bureau, a governmental entity. U.K. CPI (MoM) is a comparison of retail prices facing a typical basket of goods and services, compared on a month-over-month basis.  Monetary policy decisions, trade balance, and consumer confidence are sensitive to CPI. Currency markets involving the GBP are receptive to a growing CPI, as it is a signal of inflation. As inflationary pressures grow or reside, the Bank of England (BOE) crafts monetary policy accordingly. High CPI values are often viewed as a precursor for tightening monetary policy toward the GBP, while low readings are conducive to a dovish tone.U.K. CPI is capable of swaying GBP valuations dramatically. Strong values lead to bullish participation for the GBP and lagging CPI facilitates bearish price action.
