more soon

Soon there will be more timely versions. ABS says:


  • On October 26, 2022, the ABS will start publishing a monthly CPI indicator. This first publication will occur alongside the release of the quarterly CPI. Thereafter, the monthly CPI indicator will be released approximately four weeks after the end of the reference month, beginning with the October release on November 30. The exception to this will be the November data, which will be released in January.
  • The monthly CPI indicator will provide a faster indication of inflation using the same data collected for use in the quarterly CPI. Each month will include updated prices for between 62 and 73 percent of the quarterly CPI basket weight.
  • The quarterly CPI will continue to be the primary measure of inflation

    Inflation is defined as a quantitative measure of the rate at which the average price level of goods and services in an economy or country increases over a period of time. It is the rise in the general price level where a given currency is effectively buying less than it has in previous periods. In terms of evaluating strength or currencies, and by extension foreign currencies, inflation or its measures are extremely influential. Inflation stems from the global creation of money. This money is measured by the level of the total money supply of a specific currency, for example the US dollar, which is constantly increasing. However, an increase in the money supply does not necessarily mean that there is inflation. What leads to inflation is a faster increase in the money supply relative to the wealth produced (measured with GDP). This thus generates pressure from demand on a supply that is not increasing at the same rate. The consumer price index then increases, generating inflation. How Does Inflation Affect Forex? The level of inflation has a direct impact on the exchange rate between two currencies on several levels. This includes purchasing power parity, which attempts to compare the different purchasing power of each country based on the general level of prices. By doing so, it helps to determine the country with the most expensive cost of living. The currency with the higher inflation rate consequently loses value and depreciates, while the currency with the lower inflation rate appreciates in the forex market. Interest rates are also impacted. Inflation rates that are too high push interest rates up, which has the effect of depreciating the currency on the exchange. Conversely, too low inflation (or deflation) pushes interest rates down, which has the effect of appreciating the currency on the foreign exchange market.

Australia has a monthly inflation survey. It’s useful but it requires a subscription. Such publicly available data will be welcome.
