IPC’s basic figures vibrate investors

Basic consumer prices from one month to the other of August were worse than expected with an increase of 0.1 % while analysts’ consensus was negative of 0.1 %. IPC excluding food and energy increased by 0.6% against 0.3% expected. The annualized basic IPC is calculated at 8.3 %, compared to 8.1 % expected. The annual rate is an improvement compared to figures of 8.5 % in July and 9.1 % of June.

“The rise in food prices is an increasing concern. The food index increased by 11.4 % compared to a year ago, the highest increase from one year to the next since 1979,” said Jeffrey Roach, chief economist at LPL Financial.

The markets provide 82 % that the Fed raises its interest rates of 75 base points at the meeting of this month. Only 18% of market observers expect an increase of 50 base points. Today’s IPC data has strengthened this high conviction from the third consecutive increase in the rates of federal funds of 75 base points, which will be announced at the FOMC meeting next week.

The optimism index of small NFIB companies in August was 91.8 compared to the consensus of 90.5, which shows the optimism of small businesses. Small businesses are essential for the creation of new jobs and can be an advanced indicator of the evolution of the stock market, in particular small capitalization shares.
