Weekly Trader's Outlook

What a week! Stocks experienced some volatile moves this week, in both directions, driven by hotter than expected headline and Core (ex-food and fuel) CPI data, cooler than expected PPI data, sharply rising interest rates, falling Fed rate cut expectations, falling Consumer Sentiment, and mixed earnings and guidance from the financial sector. Investors should be prepared for more potential swings next week, as more earnings data is released, and additional insight is gathered on the strength of the consumer via the Retail Sales report.
