Early In Japan's Runaway Inflation: A Building Market Risk

See Full Report
Inflation in Japan took another sequential leap higher.

We reported last week that the dollar alone could jump the report by .2%.

Inflation jumped .4% sequentially and is up .5% now. In the last three months inflation made a 100 basis point swing.

At this pace Japan will have to much more seriously consider tightening even faster than we thought. That is a major risk to markets and may be the 2017 story.

On December 22nd we reported that the dollar's (NYSEARCA:UUP) November jump alone would seriously add to Japan's inflation report. We've been writing a lot about this subject but on December 21st we wrote that we thought central banks would briefly declare inflation-target victory then quickly fall behind the curve. Runaway inflation is an economic and stock market risk (NYSEARCA:SPY).
