Stocks Whipsaw After Inflation Data, Jobs Update

While the consumer price index fell faster than expected in December, core inflation – which excludes food and energy – only slowed as expected. Stubborn services inflation continued to be a pet peeve.

Oanda’s senior market analyst Edward Moya said the inflation data gave Wall Street more confidence in a further drop in tightening by the Fed. He said “disinflation trends are clearly intact” with cheaper energy costs as a highlight.

“Inflation is not falling overall, but it is slowing as the economy begins to feel the impact of past Fed rate hikes,” he said in a note to clients.

Tesla stock gains despite China report

Tesla launched the third phase of expansion of its Chinese factory in the middle of the year. It would double its production capacity to around 2 million cars per year.
