http://MikesDailyMarketReport.com: The Producer Price Index (PPI), which measures inflation on the Wholesale side, was released today for March. The PPI rose by 1.4% in March, while it's YoY increased by about 1% to 11.2%. The Core PPI (which excludes food and energy) rose 1.0%, while it's YoY increased to 9.2%. Investors are shrugging this off a bit today, as they think inflation may be topping out and this excess may not be passed onto the Consumer. There are a number of Central Banks around the world meeting this week, which Bank of Canada and Bank of New Zealand raised their rates by 0.5%. ECB will be meeting tomorrow, which could have an impact with our US Market. I did forget (in the video) to mention that today started off the Q1 Earnings Reports. A few large businesses did well; however, JP Morgane Chase did not. MBS is Up 34bps this morning, as Mortgage Rates improved a bit. However, need to caution as we have a 30 year Bond Auction today. Yesterday, the 10 year Treasury Auction disappointed; and MBS pulled back from earlier highs, as Mortgage Rates slightly worsened. Yields are now around 2.68%.
