Tuesday preview: US CPI; UK employment in focus

(Sharecast News) - Tuesday's focus in financial markets will be on the U.S., where the latest cost-of-living numbers were due to be published. At 1330 GMT, the Department of Commerce is expected to announce that the year-on-year rate of increase in headline consumer prices declined from 3.4% for December to 3.0% in January.

The annual rate of core CPI on the other hand was expected to dip by just one tenth of a percentage point to 3.8%.

Earlier, at 0700 GMT, the Office for National Statistics will publish the December Employment report.

Consensus is for a sharp slowdown in the pace of wage growth, including bonuses, from a quarterly year-on-year pace of 6.5% over the three months ending in November to 5.7% over the three months to December.

In the euro area meanwhile, the ZEW Institute will publish its closely followed economic confidence gauge for February.
