    Six Month Readings Look More Favorable Than Twelve Month Readings

    September 04, 2011 BY Andrew Engel

    In all of the primary inflation measures monitored in our Inflation Watch publication, the six month rates of change moved lower in July. For the most part, the twelve month readings have continued to rise. This action is likely pointing to diminishing inflation pressures for the months ahead.

    2007 Outlook: CPI Accelerating In Second Half, But Economy Slowing

    April 04, 2007 BY Jim Floyd and Steve Leuthold

    Still believe interest rates could be headed higher in 2007. While the economy does seem to be slowing and a recession is a possibility by early 2008, we expect the twelve month rate of inflation to accelerate in the second half of 2007.
