Powell Testimony, CPI and PPI.

By John Thorpe, Senior Broker



With a 20 point swing in the ES and a 155 point range in the NQ today and In lieu of the fact we have two days of Humphrey Hawkins testimony in both chambers of the house this week, I have always wondered what he Effects of the Federal Reserve Chair’s Testimony on Interest Rates and Stock Prices have been historically.

From the Cleveland Fed, I found a scholarly paper Dated 2023, for the numbers nerds among us, that attempts to, through past data sets, assign volatility to price changes in Long term and short term Treasuries and the S & P 500 index, during and after the testimony. Here are some links I hope some of you will enjoy. The Effects of the Federal Reserve Chair’s Testimony on Interest Rates and Stock Prices   wp2326 (4).pdf  https://www.clevelendfed.org>working-papers.

If you opt not to read the document, here is a quick synopsis of their conclusions: Day 1 causes the largest price movements compared to day 2. They go on to talk about the differences in the types of testimony and their findings on price volatility associated with that testimony. Be prepared for the next Humphey -Hawkins, Semi-annual testimony!


What are the US CPI Report Expectations? Traders and economists expect the US CPI report to fall to 3.1% y/y on a headline basis, with the “Core” (ex-food and -energy) reading expected to hold steady at 3.4% y/y.

What are the US PPI Report Expectations? Producer prices in June are expected to rise 0.1 percent on the month versus an unexpected 0.2 percent decline in May. The annual rate in June is seen at 2.3 percent versus May’s 2.2 percent. June’s ex-food ex-energy rate is seen up 0.2 percent on the month versus no change in the prior month.
