Gold Price Trend Forecast Summer 2019

UK Inflation Soars CPI 3.4%, RPI 4.4%, Bank of England Forecast Wrong as Usual

Economics / Inflation Apr 20, 2010 - 04:16 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Economics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUK Inflation CPI surged higher for March from 3% to 3.4% taking the academic economists that populate the mainstream press by surprise against consensus views of inflation rising to 3.1%.

The Bank of England's forecasts for inflation to fall have yet again been shown to be an abysmal failure when it comes to inflation forecasting and targeting where the mantra of UK inflation being at 2% in 2 years time only having been achieved approx 4% of the time, i.e. there is a 96% probability that inflation in 2 years time will NOT be at 2%.


Meanwhile the real rate for UK inflation as measured by the publically more recognised RPI index rocketed higher to 4.4% from 3.7% and stripping out the effects of manipulated low interest rates as a consequence of Quantitative Easing and other direct interventions such as the funneling of tax payer cash onto bailed out banks balance sheets leaves the RPIX at 4.8% which better reflects actual UK consumer price inflation experience and is inline with my own real inflation tracker that stands at 5.3%

Meanwhile deflationists that populate the mainstream press and academic institutions continue to argue the case for DEFLATION, whilst missing the obvious point that the general prices in the economy are INFLATING and NOT DEFLATING, the argument is similar to those that have persuaded most stock market retail investors to remain scared of investing in one of the greatest stock bull markets in history that bottomed in March 2009.

UK Inflation Forecast 2010

My analysis since November has been warning of a spike in UK inflation as part of an anticipated inflation mega-trend (18 Nov 2009 - Deflationists Are WRONG, Prepare for the INFLATION Mega-Trend ) that culminated in the forecast of 27th December 2009 (UK CPI Inflation Forecast 2010, Imminent and Sustained Spike Above 3%). As the below graph shows, the inflation trend to date has been highly accurately mapped out now FOUR months in advance, with inflation for March of 3.4% having been precisely forecast in December 2009.

Labour to Get Election Boost from Strong UK GDP Data on Friday

Labour will shortly be playing its Election Ace which will be an economic growth surprise to the upside on release of UK GDP Data for the 1st quarter of 2010 on 23rd April as per the forecast (31 Dec 2009 - UK Economy GDP Growth Forecast 2010 and 2011, The Stealth Election Boom ) and in depth analysis in the Inflation Mega-Trend Ebook (FREE Download). Which is set against the mainstream press / academic economists continuing debate of a potential double dip recession.

UK Interest Rate

The mainstream view continues for NO change in UK interest rates this year, this is illustrated by Roger Bootle of the Daily Telegraph's repetitive assertions that he expects UK interest rates to stay below 1% for the next 5 years. Meanwhile market interest rates have already risen as the bond markets price in higher inflation and interest rates, with the bond market targeting a year end interest rate of between 4.5% and 5% for UK government bonds which will have severe implications for the financing of Britians huge and growing £1 trillion debt mountain (PSND) with total liabilities extending to more than £3.7 trillion.

My in depth analysis of 13th January (UK Interest Rate Forecast 2010 and 2011 ) concluded with the following forecast, that takes into account that despite the Bank of England wanting to keep interest rates at 0.5%, the market as a consequence of inflation and debt will force the Bank of England to start raising rates -

UK Interest Rates Forecast 2010-11: UK interest Rates to Start Rising From Mid 2010 and Continue into end of 2010 to Target 1.75% / 2%, Continue Higher into Mid 2011 to Target 3%.
