Also, the mood of U.S. home builders has been going down for eight months in a row. Stocks have gone up for four weeks in a row because there are signs that inflation is slowing down at both the consumer and wholesale levels. This has led investors to bet that the Federal Reserve will be less strict. In order to slow down the economy, the central bank has raised interest rates four times this year, the last two times by three-quarters of a percentage point. On Wednesday, the minutes from the Federal Open Market Committee’s policy meeting in July will be made public. At that meeting, the Fed raised rates by 0.75 percentage points, which was the second time in a row that they were raised. The Fed’s next move will be based on what the minutes say.
Tim Pagliara, chief investment officer at Franklin, Tennessee-based wealth management firm CapWealth, said that a few weaker inflation readings don’t mean that the Fed will slow or even stop raising interest rates, which is what the market is expecting. Pagliara said that the recent “melt-up” in the market was “more like a bear market rally,” and he reminded investors that there were four bear market rallies of 20% or more during the dot-com bubble, and each one tested new lows.
