Inflation Numbers

|Includes:JOF, PowerShares DB USD Bull ETF (UUP)

The official government inflation rate came out at a lower 2.1% in March, compared to 3.2% in February. According to Shadowstats, the real rate is about 5%. Japan's aggressive stance on deflating their currency to fight price deflation dominated Asian markets, with the Nikkei climbing again and the Yen falling. These are good for UUP and JOF.
