U.S. equities closed higher for a fourth consecutive session ahead of the August inflation report due Tuesday. Along with the CPI data, the $ORCL and $ADBE earnings can influence the next move in the market. With the latest upswing in the market- having snapped a multi-week streak of declines last Friday when U.S. indices booked weekly positive gains- it appears the market is prepared for a 75 basis points rate hike which the Fed will likely announce next week. Along with all three major U.S. indices booking gains, oil and gold were able to finish in positive territory while the dollar marginally slipped.
There appears to be some optimism that the August U.S. consumer prices report due Tuesday will have a negative reading month-on-month, solidifying the notion inflation has peaked and the Fed is unlikely to hike borrowing costs beyond the 4% level currently priced by markets. Additional key inflation data will follow the CPI report with producer price data on Wednesday. Retail sales, import price index, industrial production index, and capacity utilization reports for August will release on Thursday while next week look out for the latest Federal Open Market Committee meeting, set to take place September 20-21st.
We are watching the overhead resistance levels in the SPY, which are presently at $417 and then $421. The $SPY support is at $390 and then $380 and we expect the market to continue the latest pullback within the next 2-8 weeks. We would be a seller into any further rallies and encourages subscribers not to chase the market at these levels. Globally, both Asian and European markets closed with mixed results while the VIX traded higher, near the $28 level. We encourage all market commentary readers to maintain clearly defined stop levels for all positions. For reference, the SPY Seasonal Chart is shown below:
