Summary:  After the CPI is before Retail Sales

Good Morning, 

After the number is before the number and after the Fed Speaker is before the Fed Speaker

The CPI yesterday showed disinflation is continuing but it w3as higher than expected. This caused yields to rise. The US 2 Year rose to above 4.6% and the peak fed rate expectation shifted higher to 5.26% in July – the year End Rate is seen at above 5%.

The Dollar gained with the USD Index now at 103.50, EURUSD 1.0710 GBPUSD 1.2100, USDJPY 133.20 and Gold and Silver at 1844 and 21.70.

While the Dow Jones and the S&P 500 fell (-0.46% and -0.03%) the Nasdaq closed higher against the odds. Normally the highly leveraged Nasdaq would suffer the most by rising rates but Tesla and Nvidia can gain significantly and support the index. Tesla gained 7.65% and Nvidia more  than 5%.

Key for today is likely to be the US Retail Sales at 14:30 and expected at 1.8%. A high number would confirm the need for the fed to be more hawkish while underscoring the strength of the economy at the same time.

Berkshire Hathaway reduced it`s position in Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing and bought 20.8 million Apple shares worth $3.2 billion acc to Reuters.

The UK CPI fell more then expected and was reported at 10.1 this morning,
