• Inflation’s impact on consumers will be on full display this week with a bevy of economic data tied to prices slated for release.

• Be on the lookout for the Consumer Price Index for July. It's a key economic data point that economists, investors and consumers will all be paying close attention to.

The impact high inflation is having on both the economy and consumer sentiment will be front and center this week with a series of pricing-related data points on the schedule. Watch for the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for July to be released Wednesday. The CPI tracks the prices of a basket of goods and services and how they change over time. Inflation has been at a 40-year high for months, hitting 9.1% in June on an annual basis. Investors and economists are looking for any signs inflation is starting to ease as the Federal Reserve raises interest rates.

Also this week, consumer inflation expectations for July are released by the New York Fed, while the University of Michigan’s preliminary survey of consumers for August is on tap. Taken together, these should give investors a better picture of how consumers are feeling about current economic conditions. Also on the schedule this week is the NFIB Small Business Optimism Index for July as well as the previous week’s jobless claims.
