The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is a measure of the average change over time in the prices paid by consumers for a basket of goods and services. It is calculated by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and is often used as a measure of inflation. In the context of the stock market, the CPI may be used to adjust the value of financial instruments or to evaluate the performance of investments. For example, if the CPI is rising, the value of a bond with a fixed interest rate may decline, while the value of stocks may increase due to the potential for higher earnings.
In the stock market, CPI is useful because it is a leading indicator of inflation, which can have a significant impact on the value of stocks.
