Upside momentum continues with S&P futures edging higher, looking to make it a 9th straight day of gains overall, and the Nasdaq Composite looking at an 11th straight day of advances, with no signs of caution by investors heading into key inflation data today and tomorrow. The producer price index (PPI) for October is expected at 8:30 AM, and the consumer price index (CPI) tomorrow, but still no concerns exhibited in the bond market with the 10-year yield at its lowest level in 2-weeks around 1.45%, while gold prices are steady at $1,829 an ounce. The S&P 500 closed at an all-time high for the eighth consecutive session last night, extending the longest winning streak since 1997, as investors added the impact of $1 trillion in fresh government stimulus. That coupled with removed travel lockdowns, a strong earnings season, and positive vaccine news has boosted stocks over the last month. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index fell -0.75% to 29.285, the Shanghai Index gained 0.24% to settle at 3,507 and the Hang Seng Index rose 0.2% to 24,813. In Europe, the German DAX is up 45 points to 16,090, while the FTSE 100 rise 0.2% to 7,313. Stocks keep pushing higher, making new all time highs each day the past week for the Dow, Nasdaq, S&P 500 and Russell 2000.

The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite added to their record-setting pace of gains on Monday, driven by a rally in information technology stocks, but the Dow Jones Industrial Average lagged behind its equity benchmark peers. The S&P 500 closed up 0.4% at around 4,529, establishing an intraday record high at 4,537.36, while the Nasdaq Composite Index ended 0.9% higher at roughly 15,266, following its own intraday record on Monday at 15,288.08. Growth stocks have led the market Friday and today, after Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell recently stressed that the central bank should not overreact to a recent jump in inflation. While the central bank is expected to begin reducing its bond purchases later this year, Fed officials have emphasized that the timing of such a move won’t impact any later decision to raise interest rates from near zero. China’s post-COVID recovery appears to have stalled in August, with an official economic activity reading coming in barely above the 50-point mark that separates growth from contraction.

In Europe, the German DAX is higher by about 30 points to 15,915, while the FTSE 100 is down about 30-points to 7,120.
