The market has learned that the interannual inflation rate in the euro area stood at 9.9% last September, which marks a new historical record and represents an acceleration of eight tenths compared to that registered in August, although it remains one tenth below the first estimate of 10% published by Eurostat.

“Despite the revision of one tenth with respect to the preliminary, inflation remains close to the maximum in its series and the risks are biased to the upside. Expectations that the ECB will raise rates at its next meeting (October 27) remain around to 75 basis points”, Bankinter analysts have pointed out after knowing the data.

In the United Kingdom, inflation returned to highs after rising to 10.1% in September and the Bank of England (BoE) has announced that it will carry out the first sale of United Kingdom sovereign bonds (‘gilts’) on the 1st of November, instead of October 31, confirming that it expects to carry out more sales operations in the fourth quarter “of a similar size and frequency as previously announced”.
