“Of much more importance is the CPIF ex-energy figure, which we expect to remain unchanged from July's 1.3% y/y, which is in line with last week's Riksbank forecast. But there remains great uncertainty around the August figures--new methodology last year for package holidays meant that the category fell over 20% m/m in August 2017, and while we look for this to roughly repeat, there are significant risks in the monthly evolution of the series until seasonal patterns can be more fully established.”
