Excessive market emotions are slowly subsiding.

In October, American earnings increased by 0.2% m/m, following a previous 0.4% m/m growth. This outcome was in line with expectations. Spending also rose by 0.2% m/m after a 0.7% increase in September.

These moderate results can be seen as an intermediate stage in economic development.

The Federal Reserve’s closely watched inflation report provided interesting data. The Core PCE Price Index in October grew by 0.2% m/m, matching forecasts. Core inflation in September saw a 0.3% increase. In a year-on-year comparison, the indicator in October was 3.5%, compared to 3.7% previously.

It appears that inflation is indeed slowing down, indicating that the regulator has no pressing reasons to increase interest rates. However, this doesn't preclude them from maintaining a high rate for as long as necessary.

For instance, the eurozone has successfully managed inflation. According to preliminary data, the CPI in November dropped to 2.4% y/y from 2.9% earlier. The forecast suggested a decrease to 2.7%.
