US stock indexes bounced concurrently, with the Nasdaq leading the gains of more than 2%, as investors’ fears over the Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank were eased after US President Joe Biden and other global policymakers vowed the crisis would be contained. The banking and telecommunications services sectors led the S&P 500 to rebound from its biggest daily sell-off since June 2020. Positive sentiment was also driven by the US Inflation data (Feb.), which slipped to 0.4% MoM from 0.5% the previous month, reported by The Bureau of Labor Statistics. Even the annual CPI position managed to meet expectations at 6% YoY, from 6.4% in Jan. A slight concern came from the monthly Core Inflation figure, which still heated up slightly at 0.5% MoM, from 0.4% in Jan. Financial markets have now priced in a 74.5% likelihood that the US central bank will raise the interest rate by an additional 25 bps at next week’s FOMC Meeting; there is even a slight probability or 25.5% to¬† be precise that the Federal Reserve may not even raise interest rates at all as reported by CME FedWatch.

As for domestic data today, we are waiting for Indonesia’s Trade Balance (Feb.), which is predicted to post another surplus, of USD 3.27 billion, smaller than January, at USD 3.87 billion. Several inflation-related economic data, namely French CPI (Feb.) and US PPI (Feb.), along with US Retail Sales (Feb.), will also be watched this afternoon and evening as the struggle to bring the US Inflation rate to a 2% level is far from over. China’s Industrial Production (Feb.), which is predicted to rise to 2.6%, will be a catalyst for global economic growth.
