Domestic and International Events

  • U.S. producer prices rose modestly in March, easing concerns about a potential resurgence of inflation. The Producer Price Index (PPI) for final demand increased by 0.2% last month, following a 0.6% rise in February. This was slightly below the 0.3% increase anticipated by economists polled by Reuters. Over the past 12 months, the PPI has climbed 2.1%, up from a 1.6% increase in February.
  • U.S. inflation experienced a higher-than-expected rise in March, driven primarily by increases in petrol and shelter costs. The Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose by 0.4% month-over-month. Annually, U.S. inflation rose by 3.5%, marking the largest increase in six months.
  • The European Central Bank maintained its interest rates steady on Thursday, marking the fifth consecutive hold. However, with inflation slowing, there is growing optimism that the ECB might start reducing rates, potentially beginning in June. The key deposit rate remains at a record high of four percent, following rapid rate hikes aimed at controlling surging inflation. Now, with inflation receding to 2.4% in March, closer to the ECB’s target of 2%, and the economic strain from higher borrowing costs, there are increasing calls for rate cuts.
  • Crude oil prices saw an uptick on Friday, driven by escalating tensions in the Middle East. Brent crude futures rose by 0.38% to $90.08 a barrel, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude futures increased by 0.51% to $85.45.
