NZ: Food Price index - October 2001

Data Flash (New Zealand)
NZ: Food Price index - October 2001

Key points

The last piece of domestic data prior to tomorrow's RBNZ MPS and OCR review revealed a 0.2% mom rise in the food price index in October (the market expectation was for a flat outcome).

The annual rate of food price inflation declined from 7.8% in September to 7.7% in October.

Fruit and vegetable prices fell 2.0% mom. However, this was offset by a further 0.8% mom rise in meat prices and a 0.5% mom rise in general grocery prices.

Comment

Our preliminary forecast for the Q4 CPI is +0.5% qoq (the RBNZ forecast 0.6% qoq in its August MPS). This result would see the annual rate decline from 2.4% to 1.7%.

We continue to expect a 50bps decline in the RBNZ's OCR at tomorrow's OCR review (70% probability; market pricing 90% probability), taking the OCR to 4.75%. Given that the global situation remains fluid, we expect the RBNZ will refrain from making strong statements about the expected outlook for policy settings in the accompanying MPS.
