Stocks Climb on Benign US Inflation Report; Webinar Today



US index futures have been rallying since the US consumer price report came out at 8:30 am EDT and are now up 0.1%-0.2%. The US Dollar Index basket has been falling on the news and is now down 0.25% which has helped to boost WTI crude oil to a 0.5% gain today and cut copper’s losses to 1.3% from 1.6% while gold has erased overnight declines and is currently trading flat.

Headline inflation for August was 5.3% over year, in-line with expectations. What appears to have excited investors was the core inflation (excluding food and energy) number which was less than expected (4.0% vs street 4.2%), which may ease some of the pressure on the Fed to start tapering.

More consumer price inflation numbers are due tomorrow from several countries including Canada and the UK. Tonight brings house price inflation, retail sales and industrial production reports for China.
