FX Weekly: Inflation and Trade Targets

Inflation released this week is expected a difference of 0.1 and 0.2. The written analysis over past months was correct and here’s why.

Since Inflation highs in June 2022 at 9.1 and 15 months later to current 3.7, each Inflation release averaged 0.36. The actual drop for each Inflation release was 0.1 and 0.2 and failed to meet or exceed the 0.36 average.

The larger range to Inflation at 1.95 factored to 0.10 = 0.2. The actual release at 0.1 and 0.2 is mathematically correct but more so at 0.1. Because a release at 0.2 = 0.39 and bumps against the 0.36 average.

A lower Inflation rate at 0.1 drops the range number from 1.95 to 1.75 or higher to 2.15. The average at 0.36 changes slightly but Inflation remains released at 0.1 and 0.2 for a very long period of time.

Inflation at current 3.7 Vs the 2.0 target or 1.7 remains a far distance. The target assumes 0.1 released at the next 17 Inflation releases and continually drops. The next 17 Inflation releases factors to 102 announcements at every 6 weeks. The target at 2.0 then forecasts to achieve March 2025 and in line with the RBA’s Inflation forecast to Australia CPI and the BOC in Canada.

Inflation at 3.7 trades oversold and another drop at 0.1 and 0.2 translates to a deeper oversold level which means, a current drop will reveal higher levels at the next 6 week release. Most vital points over the next months are 5.47 and 6.4. Both are vital points to contain Inflation at lower levels.

Inflation at 3.7 and expected to trade higher reveals GDP is slated for an easy 2% fall while Interest rates and Oil will trade higher. Oil accounts for 0.4 or 40% to central bank Inflation calculations.. In Japan, 0.2 or 20% accounts for BOJ Inflation.

Economies will remain deeply depressed. Rather than a restrictive Monetary Policy, the plan to lower interest rates and raise money supplies would skyrocket GDP and economies would prosper again. Powell requires a loose money supply rather than restrictive
