Highlights and Lowlights

The major US indexes continued to hover near previous highs, with the SPX500 rising 0.4% to break its previous record on Thursday. The DJ30 retreated a modest -0.8%, while NSDQ100 outperformed both of its peers with a 1.9% gain for the week.

New unemployment benefits claims fell to the lowest level recorded since the pandemic. The weekly index showing consumer sentiment was higher than expected as optimism about future economic growth and employment grows.  

What’s in Store for the Week?

Inflation is likely to be the foremost concern for investors as Fed policymakers hold a two-day meeting this coming week, wrapping up on Wednesday. Although the Fed is expected to keep benchmark interest rates unchanged, the recent rise in consumer prices could still warrant a tightening of other monetary policies.
