Brazil - Inflation Oct-2013

The official inflation index reached 0.57% in October, and in the last 12 months, accumulates 5.84%, and it is with a slight downward trend, as we can see in the chart below.
By decomposing the ratio between monitored and non-monitored prices, we can see that, while non-monitored prices rose 7.4% in the last 12 months, monitored prices rose only 1%. Monitored prices are mostly prices of electricity power, fuel and bus fares, and are sectors where the government intervened to prevent price increases to curb inflation.
