This week’s Bespoke Report newsletter is now available for members.
Earnings started this week, offering updates from corporate America as economic data and macroeconomic policy points towards a looming recession. Commodity prices have continued on their recent declines, while interest rates have been torn between growth concerns and a Fed that feels pressed to do more amidst high inflation. While consumer and producer prices this week we higher than expected, inflation expectations fell and presented a challenge to how the FOMC will communicate its plans for July rates policy amidst broadening core inflation, falling gasoline prices, volatile expectations numbers from consumer surveys, and big declines for market-based measures. We also discuss growth in China, retail sales data, Canada’s own 100 bps tightening this week, Italian political drama, and more in this week’s Bespoke Report.
