The index of producer prices for industrial products (domestic sales) measures on a representative basis the development of the prices of products which are produced in mining and manufacturing or in the energy and water industries and are sold inside the country. These price statistics cover both the sales of industrial products to domestic buyers at different stages in the economic process and the sales between industrial enterprises. As the index of producer prices measures price changes at an early stage in the economic process, it can serve as an indicator of future inflation trends. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The Retail Prices Index (RPI) is the most familiar general purpose domestic measure of inflation in the United Kingdom. It is commonly used in private contracts for uprating of maintenance payments and housing rents. It measures the average change from month to month in the prices of goods and services purchased by most households in the United Kingdom. The spending pattern on which the index is based is revised each year, mainly using information from the Expenditure and Food Survey. The index is compiled using a large and representative selection of around 650 separate goods and services for which price movements are regularly measured in around 150 147 areas throughout the United Kingdom. Around 120 000 separate price quotations are used each month in compiling the index, which is published each month.

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is an indicator of changes in consumer prices experienced by Canadians. It is obtained by comparing through time, the cost of a fixed basket of commodities purchased by consumers. Since the basket contains commodities of unchanging or equivalent quantity and quality, the index reflects only pure price change. The CPI is widely used as an indicator of the change in the general level of consumer prices or the rate of inflation. Price movements of the goods and services represented in the CPI are weighted according to the relative importance of commodities in the total expenditures of consumers. CPI basket shares are updated at intervals of about 4 years; they are obtained from household surveys (Survey of Household Spending and Survey of Food Expenditures). This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The U.S. international transactions accounts are a quarterly statistical summary of transactions between U.S. and foreign residents organized into three broad categories. The three categories are the current account, the capital account, and the financial account. The current account includes imports and exports of goods, services, income, and current transfers. The capital account includes mainly debt forgiveness and transfers of goods and financial assets by migrants as they enter or leave the United States. The financial account includes transactions for direct investment, portfolio investment, other investment, and reserve assets. Coverage is complete for all individuals, businesses, and economic units, as well as for all major commodities and services. International transactions in goods are valued at market prices at the time they cross geographic boundaries (as a proxy for change in ownership) and all other transactions are valued at market prices at the time of change in ownership. Transactions in services are recorded when services are performed. Investment income receipts and payments are generally recorded on an accrual basis with offsets recorded in the financial account when necessary. Direct investment capital and income are valued on a current-cost (replacement-cost) basis.

The term 'monetary policy' refers to the actions undertaken by a central bank, such as the Federal Reserve, to influence the availability and cost of money and credit to help promote national economic goals. The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 gave the Federal Reserve responsibility for setting monetary policy. The Federal Reserve controls the three tools of monetary policy - open market operations, the discount rate, and reserve requirements. The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System is responsible for the discount rate (the interest rate charged to commercial banks and other depository institutions on loans they receive from their regional Federal Reserve Bank's lending facility) and reserve requirements (the amount of funds that a depository institution must hold in reserve against specified deposit liabilities), and the Federal Open Market Committee is responsible for open market operations (purchases and sales of U.S. Treasury and federal agency securities). Using the three tools, the Federal Reserve influences the demand for, and supply of, balances that depository institutions hold at Federal Reserve Banks and in this way alters the federal funds rate. The federal funds rate is the interest rate at which depository institutions lend balances at the Federal Reserve to other depository institutions overnight. Changes in the federal funds rate trigger a chain of events that affect other short-term interest rates, foreign exchange rates, long-term interest rates, the amount of money and credit, and, ultimately, a range of economic variables, including employment, output, and prices of goods and services. The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) consists of twelve members. The FOMC holds eight regularly scheduled meetings per year. At these meetings, the Committee reviews economic and financial conditions, determines the appropriate stance of monetary policy, and assesses the risks to its long-run goals of price stability and sustainable economic growth.

The Employment Change indicator is a measurement of new jobs created within the Australian economy throughout the previous month. Consumer spending is closely linked to the creation of new jobs, as those who are employed tend to spend more (and put more back into the economy) than those who are unemployed. Employment levels and the creation of new jobs will largely impact the strength of an economy, thus a rising trend seen in this indicator should positively impact a nation's currency.

The Bank of Japan, as the central bank of Japan, decides and implements monetary policy with the aim of maintaining price stability. In implementing monetary policy, the Bank influences the volume of money and interest rates for the purpose of currency and monetary control, by means of its operational instruments, such as money market operations including buying and selling of Japanese government securities (JGSs). The basic stance for monetary policy is decided by the Policy Board at Monetary Policy Meetings (MPMs). At MPMs, the Policy Board discusses the economic and financial situation, decides the guideline for money market operations, and announces decisions immediately after the meeting concerned. Based on the guideline, the Bank sets the amount of daily money market operations and chooses types of operational instruments, and provides and absorbs funds in the market. MPMs are held once or twice a month, for one or two days. The Policy Board members discuss and decide the guideline for monetary market operations at MPMs. The monetary policy decisions are made by a majority vote of the nine members of the Policy Board, which consists of the Governor, the two Deputy Governors, and the six other members. Тhe Bank immediately releases its decisions on monetary policy, such as the guideline for money market operations and its views on economic and financial developments, after each MPM. In addition, regular press conferences by the Governor, the chairman of the Policy Board, are held to explain details of the monetary policy decisions. The Bank also releases the minutes of MPMs, and releases their transcripts ten years later, to clarify points discussed by the Policy Board in the process of reaching decisions. In addition, the Bank prepares and submits the Semi-annual Report on Currency and Monetary Control to the Diet, in June and December each year, and explains its policies.
