Stocks Fell Amid Hotter Inflation

Author:   |    Publish date:


Stocks fell amid hotter inflation. US stocks fell for the third day as inflation (6.2% vs 5.4%) was reported at 30 years high on Wednesday. Dow (-0.66%), Nasdaq (-1.66%) and S&P (-0.82%) including Russell (-1.55%) were sold-off as investors ran to cash and precious metals. Bonds were sold off, sending yields higher, with the 10Y benchmark spiked to 159 basis points as Dollar (DXY) spiked to 94.90 mark and gold rallied.

In the commodities market, crude dipped to $81.55/bl after three days’ rally, as EIA reported 1m barrels of increase in inventories. Gold rallied to as high as $1,868.70/oz before settling lower around $1,849.60 as New York closed amid higher inflation. Elsewhere, iron ore extends its losses to $92/tn as China reported lower output.

In the FX space, flights to safety were noted in short and medium term accounts as Yen, Swiss and Dollar led the demand while Aussie, Kiwi, Euro and Sterling were offered. Long term sentiments were little changed. On Thursday, markets looked for more earnings reports from Tapestry (TPR), Rewalk Robotics (RWLK) and Luminar Technologies (LAZR) as no economic data was scheduled.

OUR PICK – Crude Oil

Short term targets reached, re-entry. Saudi Arabia’s energy giant Saudi Aramco decided to increase the selling price of its crude oil by $1.40/bl and subsequently a $300m worth of block orders in crude futures took place in CME around 11am central Monday. We see further rally in crude despite Biden’s plan to tap on US strategic oil reserves as demand seems inelastic at this point going into winter and full scale renewables still in the distant future.
