Inflation Weakens Further in July

Mexico's July consumer price index (CPI) was up just 2.7% from the same month one year earlier, marking the lowest recorded inflation rate in Mexican history.  Nevertheless, Banco de Mexico is still worried that the weak peso will eventually drive inflation higher, so it continues to signal that it will hike interest rates as soon as U.S. rates go up.

June Inflation Stays at 2.9 Percent

Mexico's June consumer price index (CPI) was up just 2.9% from the same month one year earlier, matching the low level in May.  However, details in the report suggest inflation may be ready to start accelerating again, which could eventually prompt the central bank to hike interest rates.

May Inflation Falls to 2.9 Percent

Mexico's May consumer price index (CPI) was up just 2.9% from the same month one year earlier, after increases of 3.1% in each of the previous two months.  Low inflation could help support increased consumer spending, and it could allow the central bank to put off any interest rate hikes for a while longer.
