Today’s Outlook:
The Dow Jones and others closed in the green on Friday (08/09/23) although not enough to prevent a weekly decline, as US Treasury yields climbed on growing concerns that the Fed will have to keep interest rates high for some time. Yields on 10-year US government bonds are steady, and Friday’s rise in 2-year US Treasury yields seems to be putting pressure on stocks. David Lefkowitz, head of US Equities at UBS Global Wealth Management, noted investors are increasingly concerned about the continued rise in interest rates since early August. The Energy sector led the gains in the stock market, gaining 1% as global crude oil prices continued to be bullish on plans to extend the production cut period by Saudi Arabia & Russia until the end of the year.

China released their Inflation ( Aug.) figures at the end of last week, where the CPI managed to grow by 0.1% yoy, coming out of -0.3% deflationary territory in the previous month. The monthly increase in consumer prices also managed to match the estimate of 0.3% mom, up slightly from July at 0.2%. However, PPI ( Aug.) is still wallowing in negative territory of -3.0% yoy although this deflation has slowed from -4.4% in the previous month. Still from the Asian continent, Japan reported a number of important economic data one of which was Q2/2023 GDP where it came in at 4.8% yoy, below expectations of 6.0% although clearly higher than the previous quarter’s 3.2%. From continental Europe, Germany managed to record a slowdown in their August inflation to 6.1% yoy, a slight drop from July’s 6.2%.
