Your Comprehensive Hub for Inflation Data

The industry's most accurate forecasts

US inflation is at a 40-year high – which is also the amount of tabs you need open to research and predict the next CPI print.

At least, until this morning.

Because we made you an Inflation Dashboard.

The Comprehensive Hub for Inflation Data

Fed Chair Jerome Powell confirmed recently that the Fed will "stay the course" until it sees changes to inflation. The inflation rate is now positioned as the core indicator to upcoming financial events, decisions and news, both in the short-term and long-term.

The Inflation Dashboard lets you take advantage of that. Here's how.

1. Historical Inflation

Inflation is currently at a 40-year high in the United States. Our headline tool allows you to track the changes in both the headline and core inflation rate over time.

Even when comparing incoming inflation data to the past, it can be difficult to determine whether that data signals a change in the long-run trend of inflation or temporary volatility. Our historic performance chart helps you visually digest past changes and their potential significance.

2. Forecasted Inflation Rate, Weekly and Monthly

The inflation rate impacts news indirectly across industries and directly for financial events. For example, following the release of the FOMC minutes, consumer sentiment will shift on what they predict the CPI print will be. Our tool allows you to easily visualize the predicted changes in the inflation rate, and how those changes may speak to or change alongside corresponding market events.

3. Calculate your own forecast

The CPI is computed based on the value of a basket of common goods, like food, energy, housing, and transportation. You can create your own CPI forecast based on your predicted decrease or increase in the inflation rate on each of the following core indicators:

  • Clothing and commodities

  • Housing

  • Food

  • Energy and gas

  • Medical care

  • Vehicles and airfare

4. Historical Forecasting Accuracy

Benchmark how accurate prediction markets were in predicting inflation across the course of 2022. As of December, Kalshi forecasts were equally or more accurate than those of experts in the past ten of twelve months.

5. Live Market Sentiment

See what the wisdom of the crowds currently predicts upcoming economics and financials news to be. Each market reveals the real time consumer sentiment across core economics and financials indicators.

The ability to pinpoint future inflation rates is now a key consideration in investment decision-making, whether for events contracts, equities or even real estate. Not to mention, Kalshi markets have been equally or more accurate than experts in ten of the previous twelve months.
