Commenting on inflation unexpectedly remaining the same, meaning a rate rise this year is even less
Tuesday, 15 August 2017
Commenting on how inflation has unexpectedly remained the same, meaning a rate rise this year is even less likely, Shilen Shah, Bond Strategist at Investec Wealth & Investment, said: “The headline CPI print for July was somewhat weaker than expected at 2.6% - unchanged on the month as lower energy prices limited the increase over the period. CPI has probably not hit its peak, however a weak domestic backdrop suggests it will drop back soon after, with core service CPI supporting this thesis. From a monetary policy perspective, Sterling’s fall post the release of the data is another indicator that the Bank of England is likely to sit on its hands over the next few months, with Brexit related uncertainty also starting to limit economic activity and underlying inflationary pressures.”

In fact, the improvement in global manufacturing over the last year may now have reached its cyclical peak.
