  • What Yesterday’s Good CPI and Mixed Fed Messaging Means for Markets

Futures are little changed despite more positive tech earnings as markets digest Wednesday’s CPI driven rally.

Broadcom (AVGO) became the latest AI-linked tech company (after AAPL and ORCL) to post strong earnings as the stock is up 14% pre-market.

Economically, it was a mostly quiet night as EU Industrial Production slightly missed estimates (-0.1% vs. (E) 0.1%) but that isn’t moving markets.

Today focus will remain on economic data and the two notable reports are Jobless Claims (222k) and PPI (E: 0.1% m/m, 2.5% y/y).  Of the two, PPI is more important and if it is lower than expected that’ll strengthen the belief in disinflation and increase September rate cut expectations, and stocks should extend yesterday’s rally.

Additionally, we do get one Fed speaker today, Williams at 12:00 p.m. ET, and he is part of leadership so his commentary on rate cuts could move markets.
