U.S. labor market recovery gaining steam; inflation heating up
  + stars: | 2021-06-10 | by ( Lucia Mutikani | ) + 0.00   time to read: +6 min
Surging prices for used cars and trucks accounted about one-third of the rise in consumer inflation reported by the Labor Department on Thursday. The recovering labor market and accelerating inflation will have no impact on monetary policy. "As the cycle matures, these inflation pressures will subside owing to the structural forces that have kept inflation low for long." Excluding the volatile food and energy components, the CPI increased 0.7% after soaring 0.9% in April. Though layoffs are subsiding, initial claims remain well above the 200,000 to 250,000 range that is viewed as consistent with healthy labor market conditions.

US stocks were mixed Wednesday as investor optimism around the economic recovery sparked tech stock selling. Oil prices spiked following a major ship blockage in the crucial Suez Canal. US stocks were mixed Wednesday at the close with investor optimism around the economic recovery triggering a rotation out of technology stocks and into cyclical names that hinge on the US re-opening. Powell said that the US economic recovery had progressed faster than expected but was far from complete and that the Fed would provide support for as long as it takes to fully recover. Powell also acknowledged that inflation is rising but is supported by the economic recovery.
