Good morning traders!
The S&P 500 ($SPY) is trading above yesterday’s close. Let’s get into it…
Markets are trading higher this morning ahead of the release of factory orders and the Labor Department’s job openings and turnover survey (JOLTS). In the news, Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase, wrote in his annual shareholder letter that the banking crisis triggered by Silicon Valley Bank’s collapse is not yet over and will have repercussions for years to come. However, he also stated that it’s not as bad as the 2008 financial meltdown. Investors are looking for clues about the state of the financial system and its impact on banks’ day-to-day business.
Furthermore, James Bullard, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, spoke about recent banking pressures, inflation, and oil prices. He believes that recent OPEC oil output cuts may feed into inflation and make it more difficult to fight. However, he also stated that the labor market is strong, with more job openings than unemployed workers. He believes that it’s a good time to be fighting inflation, and the Federal Funds Rate currently stands at 4.75% to 5%. The next Consumer Price Index (CPI) data release is scheduled for Apr. 12, 2023.
