However, the recent, more extreme downward moves in inflation globally have been caused by the sharp drop in oil prices, by over 50 percent during the last six months. As a result, the western world today is experiencing inflation levels far below central banks’ target of 2 percent. There is increased investor unease over the risk of deflation (fall in prices), causing bond yields to head lower and exacerbating the desperate search for yield and income in financial markets.
