Consumer price index shows a change in the price of goods and services purchased by consumers. It has a direct connection with the level of overall inflation. Core retail sales demonstrate a change in the total value of sales excluding automobiles. It indicates the economic conditions of a country, as consumers tend to spend more when the economic conditions are stable. Last month both of the indicators dropped by 0.4%, despite the forecasts of increase by 0.1%. However, this month they have a chance to recover.
