The markets are flat following Tuesday’s reversal that saw the major indices finish the day in the red — and more in Wednesday’s stock market recap.
The Nasdaq and S&P 500 both fell about 0.3%. They were up as much as 2% and 1.3%, respectively, as Wall Street rallied following Tuesday’s Consumer Price Index data that came in just above expectations.
Wednesday’s Producer Price Index showed an increase of 11.2% from a year ago. It’s the biggest increase on record since the data was tracked, starting in 2010.
The PPI is not as important as the CPI. While prices at the wholesale level can impact what consumers pay at the register, consumers can pull back on their spending habits while producers must spend regardless of inflation.
In other news, earnings season started Wednesday morning, with JPMorgan & Chase Co. NYSE: JPM) reporting a $524 million hit due to market dislocations related to the war-time sanctions on Russia.
