As an appetiser to US inflation data due later Wednesday we had Chinese CPI (and PPI) data published. The official figures showed a rise in the CPI from June but not as much as expected (2.7% vs. expected 2.9% & prior 2.5%), and a lower PPI in July than in June (see bullets above for more). Core CPI in China in July fell to 0.8% y/y from June's 1.0%. From Japan we had PPI data, in line with the central expectation.
There was no news flow of note.
Early in the session comments were reported from St Louis Federal Reserve branch President James Bullard - he sees rates at 3.75 - 4% by year-end (see bullets above)
