From the Editor’s Desk  

In the week ahead, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) will publish the Inflation   report for July 2018. While we do believe the divergence in trajectory in price movement between advance and emerging economies will still persist for some time, though the occurrence  of another scenario of first  round  effect  is  grim  in  emerging  economies as Central banks of advanced economies  intend  to wind  down their  balance sheet; as the era of missing inflation have come to an abrupt end. However, the possibility of a pass through inflation streaming from currency vagaries into emerging countries will take some time to take hold. 

Back home, Inflation in the month of June fell as earlier forecasted. However, an undercut to our forecast by 0.46 was considered due to inflation inertia in food prices. This underlines the limitation of an ARIMA model to fully capture both supply shocks and push back on the heel of seasonality effect.  More importantly, it points to how growing qualitative factors could slow down the pace of disinflation, especially in the face of uncertainty.    

Moving forward, we revised our inflation forecast by adopting a regression model ahead of the initial ARIMA model given the current reality. At the same time taking into consideration that currency out of bank (COB) have become a pseudo anchor to price movement due to election spending. Regardless, we are of the opinion that food inflation will further cave inwards at a relatively lower pace for July 2018 to 12.63%, reflecting a 0.35% shave in food inflation.

In addition, we see month on month (MOM) inflation maintaining its northward trajectory moderately from 1.2% in June to 1.22% in July.  Further bolstering a hawkish tone from the Central bank, due to the uptick in liquidity.

Holistically, we see headline inflation maintaining a southward trajectory regardless of the uptick in liquidity. Therefore, we expect inflation to dip from 11.2% in June to 10.9% in July, thus reflecting a slight tilt towards the southward trajectory by 0.3%. Concurrently   supporting a minute shave in inflation premium, at the same time buffering real interest rate.  The positive real interest has not provided the needed scaffold for savings, regardless rate on treasury bills is expected to tint slightly in the coming period.
