Week Ending June 14th – Change In Progress

  • Consumer Price Index for May came in lighter than analysts expected. While energy prices have fallen, housing remains sticky at a 0.4% monthly increase.
  • The Fed held interest rates steady, as expected for the June FOMC meeting. Fed Chair Jerome Powell mentioned there has been a “modest further progress” toward the Fed’s inflation target. Consequently, the Fed is projecting 25bp of cuts this year vs. 75bp previously. (Fed Projections & CME FedWatch)
  • Producer Price Index for May continued to highlight further disinflation, as results came in 0.3% under analyst expectations. Year over year change was 2.2%.
  • Corporate: Apple recently announced its new line-up of Ai products to be released with iOS 18.
