Market Prices in Rate Cuts

The key macro event this week was the release of the October CPI data, which came in notably cooler than anticipated. The year-over-year CPI was slightly lower at 3.2%, just below the predicted 3.3%, while the month-over-month figure remained steady at 0.0%, in contrast to the expected 0.1%.

This cooler inflation data spurred a surge in equity indices. It also bolstered investor confidence in the Federal Reserve's policy direction, hinting at a possible end to the ongoing series of rate hikes. As a result, the market has begun to factor in potential rate cuts, possibly as early as May.

Current correlation metrics with technology stocks and the U.S. dollar are minimal, hovering around or at zero. This detachment highlights a significant shift from the patterns observed in 2022, where daily linkages to macro trends were more pronounced.
