According to the Eurostat data released today, the Eurozone Harmonized Index of Consumer (HICP) inflation dropped at an annual rate of 0.1% in March, meeting the analysts’ expectations. Core CPI, excluding fuel and food prices, increased to 1.0% from 0.8% the month earlier, which was above the estimates of 0.9% rise.


“Looking ahead, euro-zone inflation is likely to remain close to zero in the next few months before edging higher in the second half of the year as negative energy effects finally fade. But it looks set to remain well below the ECB’s target of close to 2%, maintaining pressure on the central bank for yet more policy support” said Jonathan Loynes from Capital Economics.
