Why Traders Care
The CPI measures inflation (a sustained rise in prices in an economy) as experienced by consumers in their day-to-day living expenses. If CPI is increasing, then it gives a central bank such as the Fed the necessary supportive data to hike rates. Higher interest rates are bullish for the country's currency.
