Weekly Market Update: High Inflation

Helping you navigate the market

High Inflation

Stronger than expected inflation data was negative for mortgage markets this week. A shortfall in consumer spending was a distant second in importance to investors, and mortgage rates ended the week higher. High Inflation
The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is one of the most widely followed inflation indicators. To reduce short-term volatility and get a better sense of the underlying inflation trend, investors typically look at core CPI, which excludes the food and energy components. In February, Core CPI rose 0.4% from January, above the consensus forecast and 3.8% higher than a year ago.

Although the core CPI annual rate has fallen from a peak of 6.6% in September 2022, it is still far above the readings around 2.0% seen early in 2021, which is the stated target level of the Fed. One big reason is that shelter (housing) costs remained elevated and again were responsible for the largest portion of the increase. However, the CPI data measures shelter costs with a lag, and more timely indicators from other sources suggest that this component will slowly come down later in the year. Other categories with large monthly increases included airline fares, apparel, and auto insurance.

Adding to the inflation concerns, another indicator released this week which measures costs for producers also was higher than expected. The core Producer Price Index (PPI) rose 0.3% from January, above the consensus forecast of just 0.2%. Due to the higher than expected inflation reports this week, expectations for a reduction in the federal funds rate have been pushed out until even later in the year. Investors now anticipate that the first rate cut will not take place until June or July.

After posting large declines in January, consumer spending picked up in February, but by less than expected. Retail sales rose 0.6% from January, below the consensus forecast for an increase of 0.8% and the results for the prior month were revised lower as well. The strongest rebound in spending was seen in motor vehicles/parts, electronics, appliances, and building materials. Retail sales, which are not adjusted for inflation, were just 1.5% higher than a year ago, below the rate of price increases over that time frame.

Week Ahead

The next Fed meeting will take place on Wednesday. No change in rates is expected, and investors will focus on the latest forecasts from officials for monetary policy and economic activity. For economic reports, the spotlight will be on the housing sector. Housing Starts will be released on Tuesday and Existing Home Sales on Friday.
Mon 3/18 NAHB Housing

Weekly Market Update: 03/08/24

Economic Data

Weekly Market Update for Week Ending in


Helping you navigate the market

Unemployment Rate Climbs

This week, the major economic data was weaker than expected, and there were no unfavorable surprises from the Fed. As a result, mortgage rates ended a little lower.
Following very strong gains in January, the economy added another 275,000 jobs in February, well above the consensus forecast of 200,000. The largest gains were seen in the healthcare, government, and restaurant/hospitality sectors. However, the results for prior months were revised lower by a massive 167,000, more than offsetting the strength this month.

The other major components of the report also revealed unexpected weakness. The unemployment rate rose to 3.9%, the highest reading since January 2022. This is up from 3.4% in April 2023, which was the lowest level since 1953. Average hourly earnings were 4.3% higher than a year ago, below the consensus forecast. Fed officials carefully monitor wage growth because it generally raises future inflationary pressures.

Another major economic report released this week also fell short of expectations. Since services account for roughly 75% of economic activity in the US, investors closely watch key data on the sector from the Institute of Supply Management. The latest report revealed that the ISM national services index fell to 52.6, below the consensus forecast. Still, readings above 50 indicate an expansion in the sector.

In his semi-annual testimony to Congress, Fed Chair Powell stuck to the same script as in other recent speeches. He continued to emphasize that future decisions on monetary policy would be determined by incoming economic data and that officials would carefully consider the risks of waiting too long to cut rates versus loosening too soon. Most investors now anticipate that the first rate cut will take place in June.

Economic Data for the Week Ahead

Investors will continue to watch for Fed officials to elaborate on their plans for future monetary policy ahead of the next meeting on March 20. For economic reports, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) will be released on Tuesday. CPI is a widely followed monthly inflation indicator that looks at the price changes for a broad range of goods and services. Retail Sales will come out on Thursday. Since consumer spending accounts for over two-thirds of U.S. economic activity, the retail sales data is a key measure of the health of the economy. Import Prices will be released on Friday.

From the moment she purchased her first home, Kristi knew that becoming a Realtor was her calling.

Weekly Market Update

Helping you navigate the market

Inflation Eases
The major inflation data released this week was right on target. While GDP growth exceeded expectations, its impact was minor. As a result, mortgage rates ended the week with little change.
Fed officials keep a close eye on inflation, and the PCE price index is their favored indicator. In December, core PCE, which excludes food and energy to reduce short-term volatility, was up 2.9% from a year ago. This was down from an annual rate of 3.2% last month and the lowest level since March 2021. While still moving in the right direction, it remains above the Fed’s target of 2.0%.

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is the broadest measure of economic activity. During the fourth quarter, U.S. GDP rose at an annualized rate of 3.3%, above the consensus forecast of 2.0% but down from 4.9% during the third quarter of 2023. Strength was seen in consumer and government spending, business investment, and inventory growth. Despite higher interest rates, the economy has remained surprisingly resilient and has shown few signs that it will enter a recession.

After ten consecutive hikes since early 2022, the European Central Bank (ECB) held benchmark interest rates steady for the third meeting in a row as expected. The statement released after the meeting again emphasized that future monetary policy decisions will be based on incoming economic data. During the press conference, ECB President Lagarde said that any discussion of a rate cut is “premature.” Similar to the U.S. Fed, the ECB is still planning to hold rates near current levels for now to help bring down inflation.

Week ahead
The next Fed meeting will take place on Wednesday. While no change in rates is expected, investors will look for guidance on the anticipated timing of rate cuts later in the year. For economic reports, the ISM national manufacturing index will come out on Thursday. The key Employment report will be released on Friday, and these figures on the number of jobs, the unemployment rate, and wage inflation will be some of the most highly anticipated economic data of the month.

Sales Leadership Excellence in 2023

Join us in congratulating the extraordinary accomplishments of Krissy Many. Not only has she secured her position as the sales leader in our Goshen office during the 3rd and 4th quarters of 2023, but she has also emerged as a shining example of leadership and dedication within our team. Krissy Many began her real estate career in 2015 with a commitment to excellence. In 2023, this commitment has not only endured but has flourished into a remarkable journey of success.

Continuous Learning and Industry Expertise

Expanding her industry knowledge has always been important to Krissy. In addition to the rigorous course Krissy completed to earn her Broker’s license, she also attended Dr. Karrass’s Effective Negotiations class. Her desire to expand her experience didn’t stop there. She has gone on to obtain multiple designations, such as Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA), Military Relocation Professional (MRP), Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE), as well as Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM). These have improved her knowledge and the service she can give to every client she works with.

With Krissy’s impressive knowledge, it is no surprise that she is the highest-reviewed agent in her brokerage and New York offices. Krissy’s collection of well over 100 five-star reviews is a testament to the exceptional service she consistently delivers. Additionally, she has earned a spot among Green Team’s top 10 agents for the last four years and counting.

Additionally, Krissy is happy to share her knowledge and actively mentors new agents who join our team. Her dedication to always doing her best helps foster an environment of growth and collaboration within BHGRE Green Team.

Krissy’s beneficial impact extends far beyond our office walls. She has dedicated many hours to organizing ways that our team can give back to and show our support to the community, from delivering donuts to local police departments on Law Enforcement Appreciation Day to organizing an “in-cider” mimosa party that not only offered a moment of relaxation but also served as an opportunity for clients to gain insights into the current real estate market. Additionally, She recently started a new teaching journey as the mentor of an outstanding local student from Chester Academy High School. Krissy is so happy to have the opportunity to not only help them learn but to give them a leg up when it’s time for them to join the industry.

A Beacon of Inspiration

“I have gotten to work much more closely with Krissy this past year, and one of the things I love about her is her humor and wittiness. Our profession can be stressful and demanding just like any other profession, but when you are surrounded by people you like and enjoy working with, it makes work that much more enjoyable and rewarding. I appreciate her more than she may realize.”      -Vikki Garby, BHGRE Green Team President

Krissy Many is not just a sales leader; she is a beacon of inspiration and leadership within our team and the community.
