Busy week for Central Bank decisions

Last week’s US inflation number came in higher than expected and sparked a volatile reaction. The S&P 500 fell sharply and the dollar jumped along with the 10-year US Treasury yield. Optimism that price pressure was cooling was immediately put on hold. Headline inflation didn’t look too bad but that includes the price of oil which is falling fast. The Fed watches Core inflation (excludes oil) and that was up 0.6% over a month. U.S. 10 Year Treasury Note has continued higher this week hitting 3.6% earlier today (Tuesday) for the first time since 2011.

Fed sent a very clear message on Friday

The main focus for investors was the annual Jackson Hole symposium where Fed Chairman Jerome Powell’s much anticipated speech on Friday led to some market volatility at the end of the week. Powell stated the Fed “must keep at it until the job is done” meaning interest rates must stay high until inflation has been brought under control. Investors anticipating that the Fed would begin lowering rates again early next year may well be disappointed.
