The latest inflation was the highest since July, when it was 1.7 percent.

On a month-on-month basis, consumer prices rose 0.5 percent in December, as estimated.

The harmonized index of consumer prices, which is meant for EU comparison purposes, increased 1.5 percent annually in December, following a 1.2 percent rise in the preceding month. This was in line with the initial estimate.

On a monthly basis, the HICP rose 0.6 percent in December, as initially estimated.

In 2019, the annual average inflation based on both the CPI and the HICP was 1.4 percent.

Trading in leveraged currency contracts comes with substantial risk. You must be aware of these risks before opening an account to trade. High leverage amplifies gains as well as losses, leading to potential loss of the entire account balance. Trading in leveraged currency contracts may not be suitable for every investor. Never speculate using money that you cannot afford to lose.
