Ahead of CPI Inflation, The Market Rose in Expectation

By Michele Schneider and Wade Dawson


Ahead of Thursday's CPI inflation print, the stock market rose on Wednesday, extending previous gains for the week. The stakes for the Fed-critical report are high since most investors expect a lower CPI Print.

Apple, Microsoft, Alphabet, Amazon, and Tesla all had gains on Wednesday, potentially signaling a modest recovery in tech in the works, or they could all plunge tomorrow.

As we ring in the Year of the Rabbit, investors have high hopes for what this new year can bring to their portfolios.

I recommend reading Mish's 2023 Outlook - a must-read resource that forecasts macroeconomic trends, markets, and commodities and is an enjoyable read!


With the Federal Reserve's expectations set that inflation will return to its target rate of 2% in 18-24 months, media coverage has recently been focused on this narrative, which is far from reality.

There is no consensus on how much the US will grow; or how deep a recession might be felt.

Energy prices have relaxed for now, which is positive. Shelter is 30% of CPI and trending higher. The prevailing narrative in the media today is that "inflation has peaked," maybe, but it will not be 2% again for many years.

The shelter component is 30% of the total CPI calculation. Wages are going up. Food is soaring.

Inflation will remain way above the Fed rate of 2%, and we will see if the CPI Print is softer tomorrow. It is positive if trending lower, but lower does not equal 2%.

With the end of 2022 and the turn of the New Year, investors must consider what lies ahead of tomorrow and beyond.

As we enter 2023 the Year of the (Water) Rabbit - according to Chinese zodiacs –many stakeholders will need insight to profit in 2023.
