And so, within a few months of 2022, the world’s largest central banks are moving away from a very expansionary monetary policy and are in the process of tightening it (or rather trying to normalize). This hits the valuation of almost every financial asset, from bonds to stocks. All this is due to extremely high inflation, which even in advanced economies approached 10%, reaching levels not recorded for several decades.

So far, it does not appear that such high inflation will abate quickly. The rise in crude oil prices is particularly worryingwhich was the most expensive since March on Wednesday and Thursday, and remained above $120 a barrel. Gasoline prices are at their highest in the United States, approaching $5 a gallon for the first time in history.

Investors understand that costs will continue to rise, and over time it will become more and more difficult for companies to raise prices and pass costs on to customers. I think that’s one of the reasons we’re seeing a lot of pressure on stocks – said Randall Kruszner, University of Chicago economics professor and former Federal Reserve governor, citing PAP.

Therefore, investors will be eagerly awaiting tomorrow’s report by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. The CPI statistics for the month of May in the US will be released at 14:30 Polish time, an hour before the start of the session in the spot market. Economists expect a reading of 0.7% on a monthly basis and 8.3% on an annual basis. The market could receive higher annual dynamics particularly badly, as it would undermine the hypothesis that the peak of inflation in the US was recorded in March (at 8.5%).
