Despite a modest disappointment in import prices MoM (and beat in MoM export prices)…

Under the hood:

  • Import prices ex-fuels rose 0.2% after rising 0.5% in Feb.

  • Import prices ex-petroleum rose 0.1% after rising 0.4% in Feb.

  • Industrial supplies prices fell 0.1% after no change in Feb.; first decline since July

  • Capital goods prices rose 0.2% after rising 0.4% in Feb.

  • Auto prices fell 0.2% after rising 0.2% in Feb.

  • Consumer goods prices fell 0.1% after rising 0.6% in Feb.

But, Import and Export prices both accelerated in year-over-year gains in March (import from +3.4% to +3.6%, and exports from +3.2% to +3.4%).

And of course, the big global driver is China, which has started to export deflation again…

Interestingly, the broad trade-weighted dollar was down 6% year-on-year in March, twice as fast as the rate of decline six months earlier.
