Switzerland in MoM deflation due to cheaper energy and clothes

Slowing energy prices (MoM -4.2%) and seasonal effects for clothes and footwear (MoM -2.8%) drove Switzerland in a slight deflation on monthly basis again.

The Consumer Price Index (source) fell by 0.3% MoM.  The CPI ex Energy fell by 0.1% MoM. The YoY remains in deflation (-3.9%), the price change since december 2011 is still +0.20%.
