QuantCube Launches Core CPI Nowcast Indicator for the US Economy

Subscribe to our newsletter

QuantCube, the alternative data analytics vendor, has launched the QuantCube Core CPI Nowcast indicator, designed to provide crucial insights into core inflation trends in the US economy, significantly ahead of official numbers published monthly. The indicator quantifies core inflation by measuring changes in the prices of goods and services, excluding the food and energy components included in the broader Consumer Price Index, which are generally more volatile.

The QuantCube team applied a fundamental approach to construct the new core CPI indicator – collecting and analysing high volumes of frequently-published alternative data on the prices of goods and services.
