What’s in Today’s Report:
- Was Yesterday’s Hot CPI the Start of a Pullback? (Four Issues to Address)
- VIX Chart Shows Options Trading Amplified Yesterday’s Selloff
- CPI Takeaways
Stock futures are rebounding back from yesterday’s steep post-CPI selloff thanks to some “cooler” inflation data in the U.K. overnight and better than expected factory data out of Europe. The 10-Yr yield is stable, just below 4.30%.
Economically, the Q4 Eurozone GDP Flash met estimates at a tepid 0.1% y/y but EU Industrial Production jumped 2.6% vs. (E) -0.3% in December easing some ongoing growth worries.
U.K. PPI also favorably declined across the board which is offsetting the nation’s slightly higher than expected CPI data.
Looking into today’s session, there are no notable economic reports but two Fed officials who happen to be scheduled to speak at the open and close: Goolsbee (9:30 a.m. ET), Barr (4:00 p.m. ET).
Goolsbee is notably an FOMC voting member who leans towards the dovish camp and could potentially add support for a relief rally today after yesterday’s sharp decline. VIX futures expiration could also impact money flows in early trade.
