Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap 01.10.22

Will be on the CPI print during the week ahead. Will we continue to see inflation accelerate as wage inflation climbs higher or will inflation begin to subside as some signs point to the easing of some supply chain bottlenecks? Additionally, fourth quarter earnings season kicks off this week.

Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap: COVID-19 Market Edition 12.20.21

Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap: COVID-19 Market Edition 12.20.21

Despite it being the week of Christmas, there is no shortage of economic data releases. The leading economic indicators index will be worth following to get an indication of economic strength heading into the rate hiking cycle. I will also have a close eye on the consumer confidence index and the University of Michigan consumer sentiment index. However, the headline release will the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) preferred measure of inflation, the personal consumption expenditures index (PCE). The Fed has acknowledged that high inflation will be stickier than originally thought by removing the word “transitory” from their December FOMC meeting announcement and will place a bigger emphasis on taming inflation. Inflation is the primary concern for investors and consumers, so it will be worth watching to see if the Fed can indeed tame it.

Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap: COVID-19 Market Edition 11.22.21

Despite the shortened trading week due to the Thanksgiving holiday, the week is loaded, particularly on Wednesday, with headline capturing economic data releases. The release that will be on the minds of most will be the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) preferred gauge of inflation, the personal consumption expenditure index (PCE). Despite the Fed saying inflation will start to abate during the Q2 – Q3 2022 time period, inflation continues to rise, which has resulted in forecasts calling for interest rate hikes in 2022. The other data release that I will be watching closely will be consumer spending. Q3 economic growth slowed in large part due to a steep slowdown in consumer spending. The trajectory of economic growth during Q4 will be driven by consumer spending, so it will be important for the quarter to start off strong.
