Early Thursday morning at 3:15 AM ET, the Federal Statistical Office in Switzerland will release the Producer Price Index (PPI) reports for Month over Month and Year over Year.
As a primary indication of consumer price inflation, the PPI measures average changes in the price of goods sold by manufacturers. If there is a rise in PPI, it often leads to a rise in Consumer Price Index (CPI), which in turn may cause interest rates and currency to rise. If this happens in a recession, profitability is lowered because producers are unable to pass on the rising costs of materials to the consumer. The recession deepens and over time, there is a fall in local currency.
