WALL ST EASES AS INVESTORS AWAIT INFLATION DATA




The anticipation of key inflation data this week is keeping investors on their toes, particularly after last week's mixed jobs report. With all three major U.S. stock indexes ending lower on Friday, there's a sense of caution in the air as investors await further clarity on the Federal Reserve's monetary policy direction.

The unexpected rise in the unemployment rate alongside more new jobs than anticipated has added complexity to the market outlook. This mixed report has led to speculation about potential interest rate cuts, with some traders even betting on a rate cut as early as May. This week's release of February data, especially consumer prices (CPI), will be closely watched to gauge whether inflationary pressures have subsided enough to warrant a shift in monetary policy. The outcome of these data points will likely influence market sentiment and investor decisions in the coming weeks.
