Commenting on how inflation has reached highest rate for 2.5 years
Wednesday, 15 February 2017
Commenting on how UK CPI inflation has reached its highest rate for two-and-a-half years, Shilen Shah, Bond Strategist at Investec Wealth & Investment, said: “Despite the headline CPI coming in slightly below consensus in January at 1.8% (consensus: 1.9%), there are clear signs that inflationary pressures are building in the UK economy with import prices increasing by 20% y-o-y, with crude oil leading the charge. The Bank of England’s currently neutral stance is significantly supported by its latest estimate about the amount of spare capacity in the economy, however if the path of CPI is stronger than it currently estimates, we may eventually see a stronger reaction from the central bank.”

Tuesday, 14 February 2017

The US election result has shifted the focus to a reflationary environment, driven by a pro-growth agenda of corporate tax cuts and infrastructure spending. Moreover, as the US economy reaches full employment, more attention is being placed on tighter labour market conditions and the upward pressure this might place on wages. All of these factors are leading to concerns about the constraining effects on household consumption, due to a fall in real incomes, as well as the prospect of higher borrowing costs.
