LGT Navigator: Has inflation in the US peaked?

Following the decline in consumer and producer price inflation in the US, the question now arises as to whether inflation peaked in the summer and whether inflationary pressure is likely to weaken further. Initial assessments by the Federal Reserve are skeptical and an unchanged stance regarding further interest rate hikes by the Fed must be expected for the time being.

LGT Navigator: Lower US inflation dampens interest rate worries (for the time being)

A much larger-than-expected drop in the inflation rate in the US eased the situation on the stock markets and fueled hopes that the Federal Reserve will not have to put the brakes on monetary policy as much as previously assumed. The question now is whether inflation in the US has peaked. However, it seems too early to sound the all-clear, but stock market sentiment is also buoyed by hopes. The conclusion of the maneuvers around Taiwan announced by China also had a positive effect on market sentiment.

LGT Navigator: US inflation data decisive for future direction

The latest data on the development of consumer prices in the United States are eagerly awaited this afternoon. At over nine percent, the US inflation rate in June reached its highest level in over 40 years. The question will be whether the Fed's previous interest rate moves have already produced a dampening effect or whether inflationary pressures have intensified further due to factors outside the influence of monetary policy. In any case, the inflation data from the US will point the way ahead for the Fed as well as for the capital markets.

LGT Navigator: Solid US labor market keeps Fed on course to tighten interest rates

In the US, the employment trend remained surprisingly robust in the summer and gives the Federal Reserve every reason to continue to put the brakes on monetary policy. On Wall Street, the strong job market report, and the associated prospect of further rising interest rates caused initial losses. Meanwhile, geopolitical tensions between the US and China continued to heat up after Beijing imposed sanctions on Pelosi, the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, and halted dialogue on climate change, military issues, and other cooperation.
