The financial market reduced its inflation forecast for 2022, from 7.3% to 7.15%. However, the scenario expected by the market for 2023 is an increase from 5.30% to 5.33% for inflation. The numbers are from the Focus Bulletin of the Central Bank (BC), published this Monday (8/1)

The previous week, the forecast was 1.93%. In 2023, the GDP estimate fell from 0.49% to 0.40%.
The Extended Consumer Price Index (IPCA) forecasts, which show a reduction from 7.3% to 7.15% in 2022 inflation, show that in 2023, the scenario is an advance from 5.30% to 5, 33%.
