How Will US Inflation Data Impact the September Fed Meeting?


Recommended Posts

ANALYST CHAT TALKING POINTS:

  • US inflation rates aren’t coming down as fast as anticipated.
  • Markets are now fully pricing in a 75-bps rate hike at the September Federal Reserve meeting.
  • US stocks have sank rapidly, while the US Dollar has clawed back nearly all of its recent losses.

 

 

 

The August US CPI report had a significant impact on financial markets on Tuesday – the US Dollar soared, gold prices slumped, and US stocks sank rapidly.

Headline US inflation increased +0.1% m/m and +8.3% y/y, topping forecasts of no gain m/m and an +8.1% y/y increase. The core reading was hotter than expected as well, coming in at +0.6% m/m versus a forecast of +0.3%, and the y/y was at +6.3% versus +6.1% expected.

Markets are now discounting a 100% chance of a 75-bps rate hike by the Federal Reserve next week. There is also a 20% chance of a 100-bps rate hike. This is a significant increase from a month ago, when there was less than a 50% chance of a 75-bps rate hike and a 0% chance of a 100-bps rate hike.

What does the August US inflation report mean for the September Federal Reserve rate decision? Senior Strategists James Stanley and Christopher Vecchio, CFA discuss in this Tuesday’s DailyFX Analyst Chat.

    • The current market indicates that ERC-404 has the potential to be a game-changer. Because of the combination of ERC-20 (token) and ERC-721 (NFT) features, it is unique yet easy to draw attention to itself. As PANDORA has generated quite a bit of excitement and produced a number of millionaires, I'm hoping BEANS can do the same. But keep in mind that the cryptocurrency market is unstable, so do your homework before investing in BEANS or other tokens.
    • It's exciting to think about the possibilities of copy-trading. But it's like a double-edged sword: it can make you an easy profit, but it can also lead to the loss of all your money. Consequently, in order to make profits  and avoid losses, you must select the appropriate elite trader to follow. And DYOR is, in my view, the most effective technique to accomplish this.
