Rates were little changed Monday as today’s inflation data matched expectations. The August Core PCE price index, the Fed’s preferred measure of inflation, rose 0.1% and was a tame 1.3% higher than one year ago, well below the Fed’s target level of 2.0%. Separately, the National Association of Realtors reported Pending Home Sales fell 1.4% in August, below the consensus forecast for a 0.5% increase. Tight inventory was blamed for the decline. Stocks moved sharply lower. No other key data will be released today.
