U.S. August Producer Prices Unchanged as Expected
The producer price index in the U.S. was unchanged in August, matching estimates by Bloomberg after a 0.1% rise in July.
On an annual basis, wholesale prices increased 1.8%.
Excluding food and energy increased 0.1% in August, in line with estimates and were also up 1.8% over the past 12 months.
Wholesale prices excluding food and energy were forecast to rise 0.1 percent after a 0.2 percent gain in July.
The report came as Fed officials were due to start a two-day policy meeting. Data on retail sales, manufacturing, the services sector and housing have suggested the economy is on a sustainable growth path.
The subdued producer prices report, however, implies the U.S. central bank could bid its time before lifting its benchmark overnight lending rate from near zero, where it has been since December 2008.
