Daily Market Analysis

This morning at 8:30 am ET weekly jobless claims; expected 228K increased 230K +4K from the previous week. The 4 week average at 230K from 229K the week before. There was no reaction to the number, close to what markets were expecting.

In pre-open trading this morning stock indexes higher after a flat day yesterday.

There isn’t any news this morning that directly impact US financial markets. Recent comments from the big financial institutions that the economy will weaken next year with the increasing potential of recession is pushing investors to treasury debt. The 10 yield down 80 bps over the last month, mortgage rates down about the same.

One week from today the FOMC policy statement, Powell’s press conference and the Fed’s quarterly forecasts for inflation, unemployment, and economic growth. Markets thinking about what the statement and Powell will say. The recent declines suggest investors expect the Fed to be more conservative in increasing rates, believing the Fed will back off its tough stance given the increasing concerns of recession next year. If Powell continues his strong stand to cool inflation regardless of recent negative comments from big banks, interest rates will turn up. Under the surface traders are leaning toward the Fed and Powell to relent.

Inflation peaked three months ago but still well above what the Fed says it wants. Tomorrow Nov PPI yr./yr. expected at 7.2% from 8.0% in October; core PPI yr./yr. 5.9% from 6.7%. Next Tuesday Nov CPI, the day prior to the beginning of the FOMC meeting.
