        Import prices continue to ease inflationary pressures.
        The decline in import prices in October was one of the key reasons that kept pushing down the cost of living. The data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics fell by 2% in October. For the detailed information, items such as Foods, feeds, and beverages decreased by 0.6 percent MoM. Building materials price decreased by 0.8% MoM. Even if we exclude fuels and foods, the overall index still fell by 0.2%.

        Energy price risk waned as geopolitical events failed to stimulate oil price.
        US crude oil experienced a significant inventory build in October. This completely offsets the upward pressure on oil prices caused by unrest in the Middle East since October 7th.
        On the other hand, after OPEC+ agreed to limit output in June, Saudi Arabia has expressed dissatisfaction with the production levels of other OPEC members. ING's Warren Patterson noted that disagreement among OPEC members would heighten price volatility, but Citigroup analysts said they did not expect any surprises from the OPEC meeting.

        The market has priced in no more interest rate hikes by the Fed.
        Federal Reserve's official Loretta Mester said recently that the officials want 'more evidence' that inflation has been defeated. However, following the reports of CPI released earlier this month, market pricing in the futures market completely eliminated the possibility that the Fed would approve any additional interest rate hikes.
        Investors will await comments from Fed officials ahead of a quiet period that begins on December 2. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell will speak on Friday.

        Personal saving rate is the key indicator to watch next.
        What will be released along with PCE, personal income and outlays on Thursday is the US Personal Saving Rate.
        The saving rate began to pick up at the end of last year but fell again this year. This seems to go against people's expectations in the Goldilocks period, when inflation normally decreases, and residents could deposit more in their bank accounts. The soon-to-be-released figures will guide on whether household income really outperformed inflation, which may determine the sustainability of the US consumption trend in the next year.

        • affable Blobfish_403 : GDP has skyrocketed, making it even more difficult to reduce inflation.

        • Gilley : but prices are still rising in America wtf my insurance just went up 50 percent no accident or anything no tickets in years 50 percent is crazy asf and prices for businesses are dropping so at this point the America people are getting ripped off

        • KingNY-Life Gilley: Accident-free claims premiums increased by 50%? Wouldn't it

        • 70863959 Gilley: All these data are scam made up lol

        • intuitive Jackal_354 : guys, the fed broke something,  now it's time to lower rates without spooking the market.

        • lightfoot : Once again, we are moving towards a recession!  The last one was 2007 to 2009 and it took years to recover.   Prices fell  .  I made money on coal.  A recession can create serious hardship and prosperity for the most patient investor.  Pay attention and have cash on hand

        • lightfoot : Recessions are like after quakes.   Millions will suffer more

        • 151859748 Gilley: everyone is getting ripped off gilley it's called wall St greed and they don't give a sh**t. we as the consumer have to boycott the products they are touting to get the insurance companys back to reality. once they see people are prepared to take the risk ,that's the only way of getting premiums down. We have to starve them of income.👍🙏🤕🙁

        • Ronda Nessler2 : all we cN do is wait them out like we have in the past you may go broke in the process I just hope I have enough staying power to respond some benefit out of this in the log run hopefully eventually I'll reap the benefits of all that we've gone through and the worst is behind us now I hope🤞
