Inflation Update

What’s in Today’s Report:

  • Inflation Update
  • Inflation Expectations Chart

Stock futures are slightly higher this morning while global shares were mixed overnight ahead of fresh U.S. inflation data and the unofficial start to the Q3 earnings season.

Economically, German CPI met expectations while Eurozone Industrial Production beat estimates, which is helping ease recent stagflation concerns this morning.

Looking into today’s session, focus will be on inflation data with the September CPI report due at 8:30 a.m. ET (E: 0.3%, 5.3%) as well as the start of Q3 earnings season with JPM ($3.00) and DAL ($0.15) reporting results before the open.

Then in the afternoon, we will get the FOMC Meeting Minutes (2:00 p.m. ET) and multiple Fed speakers: Brainard (3:30 p.m. ET), Bowman (8:00 p.m. ET).

Finally, there is a 30-Yr Treasury Bond auction at 1:00 p.m. ET that could impact yields and ultimately move equity markets (especially if yields make new highs).
