Fed member Mary Daly said the CPI data was good. Meanwhile, Fed member, Harker, expected the Fed to stop raising interest rates when they reach 4.5%, noting that a rate hike of less than 75 basis points is now likely. Harker said there are clear signs of slowing down the US economy.

Daly said that a positive one-month data is not a complete victory, and a drop to 7.7% is not close to the Fed’s target.

Daly confirmed that more rate hikes are coming in the upcoming meetings, but now we have to slow down the rate hike.

Reasons for ascent

inflation data

It rose on an annual basis by 7.7%, while experts expected it to rise by 8.0%, and it is mentioned that it rose by 8.2% in the last reading.

While the main rose monthly by 0.4%, and experts expected it to rise by 0.6%.

Investors and experts lowered their pricing and expectations for the Fed’s next interest rate decision in December, falling below 75 basis points.

Refinitiv said the drop in inflation data in October indicates that inflation has already peaked and will begin to decline gradually, which could give the Fed the ability to pace a less aggressive rate hike.

The US market short-term trade has priced the maximum rate hike at 4.75% to 5.00%, to reach that level in March 2023.
