  • An interest rate hike in Norway are a very long way off as inflation is unlikely to meet the Norges Bank's target any time soon amid weak domestic price pressures, Stephen Brown, an economist at Capital Economics, said. Headline inflation rose to 1.6 percent in September from 1.3 percent in August, data from Statistics Norway showed on October 10. The upward trend in inflation was partly driven by energy prices, and also due to clothing inflation. The Norges Bank's preferred measure of inflation, CPI-ATE, which excludes energy prices and the direct effect of tax changes, increased to 1.0 percent from 0.9 percent. Looking ahead, Capital Economics suspect that the CPI and CPI-ATE inflation might edge down in the fourth quarter. "After all, past exchange rate movements point to lower imported goods inflation ahead," Brown pointed out. The big picture is that, despite recent positive signs on economic growth, domestically-generated inflationary pressure is fairly weak...

  • BRAZIL: Annual CPI Accelerates To 2.54%, Back To Inflation Target Range The 12-month inflation rate in Brazil came in at 2.54% in September, accelerating when compared to the 2.46% annual rate recorded in August, and above economists projections (+2.47%), said the country's statistics office. Brazilian CPI is now at the bottom of the country's central bank inflation target range, between 2.5% and 6.5% per year. In a monthly comparison, the Brazilian consumer price index rose 0.16% in September, decelerating when compared to the 0.19% rate posted in August, according to the Brazilian statistics office. Analysts expected a 0.09% growth. The inflation reading reflects the decline in food and beverage (-0.41%) and housing (-0.12%) prices in September compared to August, which offset the 0.79% increase in transport prices after the government's decision to double a tax on fuels. As other groups had small price gains, the inflation rate remained constrained. Year-to-..
