U.S. stock markets are rebounding after major indices fell a second straight day Thursday as consumer price inflation (CPI) data spiked to 30-year highs, renewing fears that the Fed is behind the curve and may need to raise rates quicker. There is no major U.S. economic data, and Bond markets are closed today in observance of the Veteran’s Day Holiday. Sterling hits lowest levels since Dec ’20 vs. the dollar and euro to lowest since July ’20 as the buck surges to more than 1-year highs. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index rose 171 points to settle at 29,277, the Shanghai Index gained 40 points (1.15%) to settle at 3,532 and the Hang Seng Index gained 1% to finish at 25,247. In Europe, the German DAX is higher by 20 points to 16,090, while the FTSE 100 is up 25 points to 7,365. Investors and traders have been trained to “buy the dip” on any market pullback over the last 2-years, and to this point have been rewarded with all major averages just off their record highs earlier this week. Year-to-date, the Dow is up 17.8%, the S&P 500 up 23.7%, the Nasdaq Composite up 21.2% and the Russell 2000 up 21% in what has been a broad, strong market rally behind better corporate earnings, government stimulus plans, and an easy money policy stance by the Fed. Earnings are finally coming to an end for the quarter, with Dow component Disney (DIS) sliding nearly 5% overnight on its top and bottom-line miss.

Thursday, August 12, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 40.00 0.12% 35,413 S&P 500 2.25 0.05% 4,442 Nasdaq 5.50 0.04% 15,025 Another day, another record high for the Dow and S&P 500 as futures are pointing to a slightly higher open, building on the ongoing upside momentum that pushed the S&P 500 to its 45th all-time high Wednesday. Both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 are coming off all-time bests as consumer prices (CPI) data indicated U.S. inflation was in-line with estimates, raising hopes that growth may have peaked, while sectors tied to economic growth such as industrials, materials and metals advanced a second day on the heels of the passage of a large infrastructure bill. The July consumer price index increased 0.5% last month after climbing 0.9% in June, though on a YoY basis was above 5% again (ahead of today’s PPI data at 8:30 AM ET). Meanwhile, two Fed members (George and Kaplan) each said the central bank should announce its timeline to reduce its massive bondholding, with Kaplan calling for it to begin next month, with tapering to begin in October. Healthcare was also a drag on markets as S&P components MRNA and PFE fell after the drug regulator of the European Union said it was looking into new possible side-effects of mRNA COVID-19 shots. Asian shares dropped for the first time this week as China stepped up scrutiny of its insurance technology platforms while European stocks drift on mixed earnings results. The Nikkei Index slipped -55 points to 28,015, the Shanghai Index slid -7 points to 3,524, and the Hang Seng Index dropped -142 points (0.535) to settle at 26,517. In Europe, the German DAX is up over 60 points to 15,888, while the FTSE 100 is down a few points at 7,210.
