Greenback Drops, Equities Rally after CPI Proves Hotter than Anticipated. Why?

Yesterday’s headline and core CPI beats resulted in a fairly uncommon market response. The preliminary transfer went in accordance with the standard ‘playbook’, the place, upon realization that inflation is hotter and stickier than anticipated, the overarching narrative of aggressive price hikes (“increased for longer”) from the Fed gained momentum. Greenback up, equities down – as anticipated.

Nevertheless, worth motion exhibited a large turnaround, because the session ended with the greenback loads softer and US equities printed increased, shifting about 180 factors between the day by day low and day by day excessive.

The precise motive why the transfer transpired isn’t but identified however it will likely be attention-grabbing to see if the “dangerous information is nice information” narrative develops round future prints. That is the concept that continued inflation results in an overshoot within the Fed’s price mountaineering which can ship the financial system right into a tailspin ahead of anticipated, justifying looser financial measures (price cuts) within the not-too-distant future.
