The annual inflation rate in the US slowed only slightly to 6.4% in January of 2023 from 6.5% in December, less than market forecasts of 6.2%. Still, it is the lowest reading since October of 2021, with energy prices rising 8.7% while food cost went up 10.1%. Although inflation has shown signs of peaking at 9.1% in June last year, it remains more than three times above the Fed's 2% target and continues to point to a broad-based advance on the general price level, particularly services and housing.
