DAX down -1.62%, EUR USD up +0.47%

Consumer prices, harmonized to make them comparable with inflation data from other European Union countries (HICP), jumped 7.6% on the year after 5.5% in February.

German consumer price index (CPI) expanded by 7.35 year on year after an inflation rate of 5.1% in February.

A high inflation rate in Germany was last posted in the autumn of 1981 after mineral oil prices rose as a consequence of the first Gulf war.

The inflation rate remains high despite the base effects caused by the short-term reduction of value-added tax rates and a sharp fall in mineral oil product prices in 2020.
