UK consumer inflation rises further in June and this just reaffirms that the reading is on its way towards double-digits, as per the trajectory that the BOE had anticipated. On the month itself, inflation rose by 0.8% with the details revealing that housing and household services contributed the most to the increase in prices.
Producer prices also moved higher with input prices rising by 1.8% on the month and output prices rising by 0.8% on the month. This will do little to dissuade the BOE from hiking by 50 bps in August.
