According to Swiss statistics, the yearly change in the Swiss consumer price index has risen from  -0.1% to 0%. The headline MoM figure fell by 0.4% due to the yearly sell-off in the retail sector.

The difference between euro zone and Switzerland in terms of the European  Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices HICP has narrowed to 1.1%. from 1.4% last month. Swiss inflation measured with HICP has increased to 0.5% y/y. Italian and French HICP are at 1.2%, German HICP at 1.9 (source Eurostat).
