(-0.1%) over the third quarter to reach 134.0 in September 2014. On a monthly basis, the index lost 0.1 point (-0.1%) in July and remained unchanged in August and September 2014.
 
2.            The average PPI-M for the third quarter of 2014 was 134.0, down by 0.3 point or
-0.2% compared to the third quarter of 2013. That was mainly due to changes in the prices of the following:
 
              (i)      Gold under “Other products” (-4.7%);
             (ii)     “Basic metals” (-4.2%); and
             (iii)     “Food products and beverages” (-1.1%), partly offset by rises in the prices of
             (iv)    Ships and floating structures under “Other transport” (+7.9%); and
             (v)     “Wearing apparel” (+5.2%).
