Inflation has been softening around the globe in the last two years, as we have seen in many major/developed economies. But, it has been increasing in China, despite the trade war and the decline in manufacturing economy. Will this be another toxic combination of low growth and high inflation like in Germany in the '30s? CPI has been increasing from 2.8% back in August, to 3.0% in October, 3.8% in November and 4.5% in December. In January though, we saw another jump to 5.4%, so, prices are surging in China and CPI came in at 5.2% in February. But, in March inflation fell to 4.3%, while in April it cooled off further to 3.3%. PPI on the other hand, declined for the third time, by 3.8% that month, ac Oil imports became cheaper. In May CPI YoY fell to 2.4% as the weakening trend continued, but inflation reversed and posted a small increase to 2.5% in June and to 2.7% in July. It cooled off in August in China to 2.4%, and further to 1.7% in September, while PPI remains negative at -2.1%. In October CPI cooled off to 0.5%, while declining by 0.5% in November, but in December we saw a 0.2% increase. Although it turned negative again in January, and February. In march expectations are for a 0.3% increase though. Please follow us for live coverage of this event by experienced market analysts.
