US Market View
U.S. stocks are seen opening largely unchanged Tuesday, remaining near record levels, ahead of the start of the latest two-day FED meeting. The Federal Reserve’s two-day policy meeting starts later Tuesday, and while the central bank is not expected to take any action this time round it could hint at its future tapering plans given the recent surge in consumer prices. Also due for release Tuesday is the PPI for May, a particularly relevant number given the focus upon inflation. Year-over-year, the PPI is expected to have spiked by 6.3%, the largest increase since the agency started tracking the data in 2010. It had jumped 6.2% on a yearly basis in April. Crude oil prices headed higher Tuesday, remaining near multi-year highs, as the immediate threat of additional supply from Iran returning to the market dwindled.
A lot of attention is going to be on the start of the two-day Federal Reserve meeting, but there’s also a lot of important economic data to study Tuesday.
The Fed has repeatedly said that near-term price spikes will not translate into lasting inflation, but prices paid by companies to producers are expected to continue rising, jumping by 0.6% in May from the levels in April, matching the increase from the prior month, when released at 8:30 AM ET.
