American inflation is extraordinary because the US economic recovery is 'exceptional,' JPMorgan says

Inflation in the US is handily outpacing that of other advanced economies, and it's probably thanks to the country's stellar recovery, JPMorgan economists said.

Advanced economies lead the pack, benefitting from massive stimulus measures and more efficient vaccine distribution. Within that group, the US is among the best performers. The country's economic output is expected to grow at the fastest rate since the 1950s, and some banks are already revising their estimates for 2022 growth higher on hopes for an even smoother rebound....

S&P 500, Nasdaq close at records as investors shrug off inflation concerns

The S&P 500 recorded a record high for the second trading day in a row while a rally in tech stocks helped lift the Nasdaq to a record high. Investors are awaiting a key Fed decision later this week. Technology was the best performing sector in the S&P 500, with Apple gaining 2% and Facebook climbing over 1%.  The yield on the US 10-yr Treasury rose to 1.5% after hitting a three month low last week.  Investors are eagerly awaiting for signals from the US Federal Reserve later this week about a timetable for scaling back ultra-accommodative policies. The decision is due Wednesday, with most economists anticipating the central bank will leave its policy mostly unchanged....

American inflation is extraordinary because the US economic recovery is 'exceptional,' JPMorgan says

Inflation in the US is handily outpacing that of other advanced economies, and it's probably thanks to the country's stellar recovery, JPMorgan economists said. With vaccines rolling out and lockdown measures slowly being lifted, the global economy is on the mend. Advanced economies lead the pack, benefitting from massive stimulus measures and more efficient vaccine distribution. Within that group, the US is among the best performers. The country's economic output is expected to grow at the fastest rate since the 1950s, and some banks are already revising their estimates for 2022 growth higher on hopes for an even smoother rebound....

S&P 500 flirts with record high as investors await Fed decision

US stocks opened mixed Monday morning as the S&P 500 flirted with a record high. Investors are eagerly awaiting for signals from the US Federal Reserve later this week about a timetable for scaling back ultra-accommodative policies. The decision is due Wednesday, with most economists anticipating the central bank will leave its policy mostly unchanged. "With stocks at or near record highs, economic data and the outcome of the Fed's FOMC meeting on Wednesday will be a primary focus this week," said Oppenheimer's John Stolztfus.  "In our view the risk of inflation that would prove to be stickier than most folks expect lies less with Fed policy than it does with fiscal policy and stimulus programs that are being considered and could come from Capitol Hill and the Administration's efforts," the chief investment strategist added....
