Nat Gas has just hit its absolute minimum valuation in mid Sept. It has bottomed. The Grains have bottomed around the same time. Gold just reached a new high, and I do beleive that Gold price precedes the inflation deflation level by 2 months.
Everything is converging on November, 2009.
The November CPI number will surprise everyone.
Then the inflation chain reaction begins.
By the way, commodities are global, and demand has picked up worldwide.... What people fail to understand is.... if all americans change their spending habits and refuse to consume ANYTHING, the prices will still increase.
And as for "Ghost Malls", I know all about them -> Take a Look at GGWPQ.PK
I am really concerned about what will happen after America sees that inflation is here.
I am afraid of "inflation day". I hope people don't go off the handle. My fear keeps pulling me to stock up on necessities before the Nov - Dec CPI numbers are released. If Nov doesn't scare enough people, then Dec CPI release definitely will.
