Artemis Investment Limited – Stock futures tick higher, investors continue to mull April inflation

U.S. stock futures edged slightly higher ahead of overnight trading Wednesday following another down day in markets as investors digested inflation data that showed price levels remained elevated in April.
 
HONG KONG - May 11, 2022 - PRLog -- Futures tied to the S&P 500 rose 0.3% after the index settled at 3,935.18, or its lowest level since March 2021. The S&P 500 is down more than 17% in the first 90 trading days of 2022, marking its second worst start to a year, according to data from Compound Capital Advisors. Contracts on the Dow Jones Industrial Average inched up 0.2% after a decline of 300 points, or just over 1% in the main session, and Nasdaq Futures advanced 0.3% after the tech-heavy benchmark fell 3% during the trading day.

The moves build on a streak of sharp losses in equity markets and follow April's Consumer Price Index (CPI) out Wednesday, which showed an inflation rate that held near a 40-year high despite a marginal pullback from the prior month. Furthermore, the so-called core price index, which excludes the volatile food and energy categories, came in higher than economists had anticipated, stoking worries among investors that elevated prices may persist.

April's snapshot of inflation across the U.S. comes as investors gauge how aggressively the Federal Reserve will intervene to rein in rising price levels via monetary tightening, including increases on interest rates. Uncertainty around the central bank's next move has spurred turbulence across risk assets, sending all three major indexes to their lowest trading levels year-to-date.
