Inflation Graph
If you are interested in the impact that inflation has had
on prices of goods and services, SignalTrend's
Inflation Graph is
the place to begin. Inflation has a
tremendous effect on investments, so our Inflation
Graph also graphs the S&P 500, the Dow Jones
Industrial Average and interest rates.  Various  events
in recent history, have been graphed to enhance
investor perceptions regarding pressures which
events exert on investments and inflation.

The 100 year graph covers inflation from 1922.
Observe that several periods before 1950  reflect
negative rates of inflation. Those periods indicate
deflation (declining prices).

The inflation graph shows that inflation rates have been
relatively stable and moderate since 1982, similar to
inflation from 1952 through 1967. That period succumbed
to runaway inflation. The present period may do the same.
