- As expected, Eurozone CPI dropped 0.1% on month in October vs +0.5% in September.
- On year, inflation fell to +0.7% (also in line) vs +1.1% previously.
- Core CPI +0.8% vs +1%.
- Inflation fell further away from the ECB's target of just under 2%, possibly giving the bank even further room to cut interest rates to zero - although the German's would surely have something to say about that - following the surprise reduction last week to 0.25%. (PR)
