Wall Street Analysis

Jeffrey Roach, chief economist at LPL Finance, believes that widening regional differences could complicate national monetary policy, however, the Fed is still on track to raise rates by another 3 yards next month.

Michael Brown, strategist at CaxtonFX, said: “The Fed now only has an inflation target of 2%, and unless inflation data improves for several months, it is hard to imagine a dovish Fed turn. A 3-yard rate hike from The Fed next month is still my bottom line. It’s hard to be bullish on stocks in that situation.”

Neil Dutta, head of economics at Renaissance Macro Research, said: “In short, we’re starting to see some dovish market talk, but I don’t think that’s enough to prevent another rise in the rate 3 yards in. November, all eyes on Friday are on non-farm payrolls.”

Lindsey Bell, chief market and currency strategist at Ally, said: “Market expectations are the ‘Goldilocks’ economic report that is neither too hot nor too cold.”
