The upbeat market mood remains intact on the last trading day of the week as investors cheer the soft inflation data from the US and news of China easing the Covid-related restrictions. The US Dollar Index continues to edge lower below 108.00 after having lost more than 2% on Thursday and global stock indices push higher. Bond markets in the US will be closed in observance of the Veterans Day holiday but Wall Street will operate at the usual hours.

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics announced on Thursday that inflation in the US, as measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI), declined to 7.7% on a yearly basis in October from 8.2% in September. The Core CPI, which excludes volatile food and energy prices, fell to 6.3% from 6.6% in the same period. With both of these readings coming in below market expectations, the CME Group FedWatch Tool’s probability of a 50 basis points Fed rate hike in December jumped above 80% from 50% earlier in the week. In turn, major equity indexes in the US registered impressive gains, the US Dollar suffered heavy losses and the benchmark 10-year US Treasury bond yield declined toward 3.8%, losing nearly 7% on the day.
