Says who? It’s still getting worse, isn’t it?

No it isn’t getting worse. Inflation month-over-month numbers have been at target rates the last five months in a row.

Who’s target rates? “Target rates” means nothing.

The Fed’s target for inflation is around 2%.

The last six month’s MoM numbers are 0.0%, 0.1%, 0.4%, 0.4%, 0.1%, and -0.1%. Those annualize to well below 2%, meaning inflation has already been tamed. The rest is just waiting for the other 6 months numbers from before the Fed raised interest rates to fall off of the 12 month number.

No, it means something. When you don't know a thing, that's not the same as a thing having no meaning.
