Tensions in Middle East

Markets go risk averse seeking out the US dollar and Japanese yen on geopolitical tensions following the surprise attack by Hamas on Israel. The price of oil also surged higher on supply shock concerns. Since the open, markets have calmed but should the conflict escalate then we could these moves continue.

US inflation to guide higher-for-longer narrative

Markets continue to grapple with the concept of the Fed keeping interest rates higher for longer given the underlying strength in the US economy and Fed’s resilient battle to bring inflation back down. Thursday’s numbers are expected to show further easing in prices which should ease the higher rates for longer expectations. Could see a weaker US dollar as a result but dependent on the situation in the Middle East.
