IMO E!!

First, prospect of inflation is the correct idiom so on the basis of that, C and D are eliminated.

B is not conveying the intended message of the sentence and is awkward. Also B has "as yet" as well as "currently" which I feel are the same so one is redundant.

A has one problem that "so far" should be placed immediately after "there are few signs".

E is absolutely clear in meaning and is grammatically correct.

Among A and E,
A doesn't shows the proper contrast.
Consider this:
1)X is happening, [CONTRASTING WORD] something related to X is in positive aspect.
2)X is happening, [CONTRASTING WORD] something just opposite to X is happening.

Quite easily you will see that 2 is much better in order to imply contrast.
My take E
