- Consumer Price Index (USD, GMT 12:30) – CPI is anticipated to present September gains of 0.3% for the headline and 0.2% for the core, following August gains of 0.3% for the headline and 0.1% for the core. CPI gasoline prices look poised to rise 1.5% in September. As-expected September figures would result in a 5.2% headline y/y increase, following a 5.3% pace in August and a 13-year high of 5.4% in June and July.

- Employment and Unemployment Rate (AUD, GMT 00:30) – The Australian jobs market is expected to show a negative employment report, with a loss of a 90k jobs in September after the massive 146.3k jobs lost in August. The unemployment is anticipated to tick up to 4.9% from 4.5% in August.

The massive PPI climb since the start of 2021 exceeded the uptrend in headline and core CPI data, and both sets of gains are chasing outsized increases in the trade price measures, alongside ongoing supply constraints that have provided a powerful lift for the inflation indexes.
