The major indexes slid lower Friday morning following a hotter-than-expected inflation report — and more in Friday’s stock market recap.
The Producer Price Index, which gauges how much companies spend on their products and services, rose 0.3% month over month and 7.4% year over year.
But I’m more concerned about the Core PPI, which excludes food and energy prices. Core PPI rose 0.4% on a monthly basis and 6.2% for the year, versus expectations of 0.2% and 5.9%, respectively.
Investors are now looking ahead to Tuesday’s Consumer Price Index report, which will offer more inflation data ahead of the Federal Reserve’s next meeting starting Dec. 13.
In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss what today’s PPI means for the market… how low the bond market is likely to go… an update on major earnings reports and why it’s important… if major sector rotation is pushing our favorite sector lower… if volatility will sink or swim… plus the best way to take advantage of the current market cycle.
