In Jul, the seasonally adjusted producer price index (PPI) for final demand was unchanged from Jun – see table 1. Excluding foods, energy and trade prices, the core PPI increased by 0.3%. On a year-on-year basis, the headline PPI rose by 3.3%, while its core PPI rose by 2.8% – see figure 1.


The increasing cost of transportation amidst strong demand, high energy prices, and rising labour expenses are likely to see the PPI trending upward in the months ahead.


Note from Publisher
Capital Dynamics group started its operation 30 years ago with Capital Dynamics Sdn Bhd, the first licensed independent investment advisor in Malaysia. The first few years were extremely challenging. The company struggled to gain clients because it was unknown and without the backing of well-known individuals or institutions. The hard work of Tan Teng Boo and his team finally paid off years later when many subscribers of i Capital requested Teng Boo to manage their hard-earned money.

From an investment adviser, Capital Dynamics expanded into the fund management business, initially providing Malaysia focused services, subsequently managing global funds as well as individually managed accounts. Without the support from the print and online subscribers of i Capital and the trusts bestowed on our fund management services from thousands of investors, Capital Dynamics would not have been able to go so far. Therefore, we organise an “Appreciation Concert” to thank all clients of Capital Dynamics as we celebrate our 30th anniversary.

If you wish to come to the appreciation concert, you really need to act immediately because would not be able to receive any registration once it hits full capacity. Meanwhile, we also eagerly await your participation in the 2018/2019 Global Investor Week on 13th and 14th Apr 2019. Kindly go to to register.
