Slight delay in the release by the source. Annual headline inflation continues to sit in negative territory, but the core reading sees a mild improvement and that should allow the SNB to breathe easier towards the end of the year.
That said, inflationary pressures overall remain largely absent as it is still a long distance away from the desired 2% level. As such, that should keep some pressure on the SNB to ease further if price pressures start to dwindle again next year.
