Good Morning. The dollar is up 60 points. Bonds are marginally stronger. Stocks are mixed and essentially unchanged. Gold is up $11 in the face of USD strength. Silver is very strong up 43 cents. Crude oil is down 40 cents Grains are all up uniformly and Crypto is also tracking stocks at unchanged.
PCE came in hot indicating consumer spending has not decreased as fast as Powell would like.
UMich- came in as we wrote this:
UMich Final Sentiment 58.6, Exp. 59.5, Last 59.5 Current Conditions 59.7, Exp. 58.7 Expectations 58.0, Exp. 59.9 1 year inflation: 4.7%, Exp. 4.6%, Last 4.6% 5-10 year inflation: 2.7%, Exp. 2.8%, Last 2.8%
Overall a softening of inflationary expectations from UMich. Zerohedge just posted this white chart below as well. We added the Gasoline chart. Note how short term inflation expectations ( Gold and Blue) are closely tied to Gasoline.
Short term inflationary expectations are lower while 10 year climb….
