COVID-19 inflation effect sees a massive pre-pandemic to post-pandemic difference as inflation reportedly grows from 10% to a whopping 17% after COVID-19. How bad could these numbers be and how did the pandemic affect inflation?

COVID-19 Effect on the Economy

According to a certain account @xtrends on Twitter COVID-19 inflation will bring inflation to 17% after COVID. In order to thoroughly understand where the statement is coming from, the twitter users' bio lists down the credentials of the owner of the account.

xTrends is reportedly a trader, painter, engineer and has been trading ever since 1998. One thing also noted is that the account's life's work includes the Structural Principles of Market Trends. Aside from this, the account also supposedly belongs to the founder of Turkuaz Global and D&Co Capital Sciences.

Post-COVID-19 Inflation

Doing a quick search online would not be too fruitful as the name of the founder is not readily available. What is available, however, is the account's market watchlist. According to xTrends, before COVID-19 ever happened, the real inflation was at 10%. After COVID-19, the account states that it will be at 17%.

It was also noted that the CPI number is actually "completely irrelevant" and that China now has "more reliable numbers" compared to that of the United States as of the moment. T-Bonds were also noted to be rising due to the whole reverse repo operations of quite epic proportions. This is now the only transitory thing as of the moment.
