Thursday, investors gauged S&P PMI numbers that came in generally higher with indexes showing 50.9 in manufacturing, 54.4 in Composite, and 54.8 in Services. Initial jobless claims came in lower than last week, at 215k. The small drop kept treasuries and inflation expectations high.
In the most recent meeting minutes released Wednesday, many FOMC members commented on their uncertainty about when rates should come down. Several participants said they were willing to raise rates further.
The committee, during their April 30-May 1 meeting, found that uncertainty came from the possibility that "high interest rates may have smaller effects than in the pas." Participants said interest rates would stay put unless inflation numbers were clearly at 2%, or the labor market clearly weakens. Members said they would be willing to raise rates if "risks to inflation materialize in a way that such an action became appropriate."
This week investors will also watch numerous Fed speeches. Federal Reserve Governor Christopher Waller said on Tuesday that if economic data continues to weaken over the next three to five months, the central bank might consider lowering interest rates by the end of 2024.
Monday Morning, Fed Vice Chair Jefferson said its too early to tell if disinflation was working. Cleveland Fed President Loretta Mester said her three cut plan was too many.
