Cool inflation, cool vol. Cool cool.


The CPI came in cooler than expected and futures are sharply higher to start the day. This number completes the picture traders and investors were hoping and betting on over the past several week’s rally in the market. The story went: A Fed done raising rates, a job market that isn’t hot, but isn’t crashing, inflation continuing to cool, and treasury yields having already topped out. That story appears to be complete for now.

Whether that is a buy the rumor, sell the news situation now, or it’s a situation where so many investors got left on the sidelines of this rally and have to play catch up now, is the next story in the market, and will play out into year-end. What is already true is implied vol in the market is low and expectations for large moves after today are quite low. For traders that means being very aware of how tight expected move strikes are, especially to the upside, and for directional traders to be prepared to not see massive moves in stocks without a catalyst.
