October Inflation Holds Steady

October's inflation number remains unchanged at 6.9% from September, yet economists say it's heading in the right direction. Why?
⛽️ The cost of fuel increased for the first time since June, by 9.2% over September due to production cuts.
🥦 While the cost of groceries is up 11% from last October, this is down from 11.4% in September vs last year.
👷‍♀️ Wages are up 5.6% over 2021 but this might not last for long amidst increasing interest rates and impending economic slowdown.
🇨🇦 The Bank of Canada's next announcement is scheduled for December 7th. They will most certainly raise the overnight rate again, this time predictions are either 0.25% or 0.50%. Hopefully the end of the hikes is in sight as it can take up to two years for interest rate increases to fully cycle through the economy.
If you have any questions or concerns about planning for 2023 into 2024 and beyond, I'm happy to have a chat and look at your individual situation and devise a strategy to protect your financial health.
