Inflation continues to worry the Fed, with its preferred measure, core PCE, coming in higher than expected for August. It printed at 4.9% YoY versus 4.7% YoY in July. Moreover, the NFP was also higher than anticipated coming in at 263K (248K - expected). Given these upside surprises, the market has priced in an 80% probability for a 75bps increase in November.
However, there is a variable that needs watching. The weekly RSI for the real yield is overbought. That is likely to normalise at some stage and may lead to countertrend rallies. If this happens, we think it is a temporary correction until more moderation from the inflation data.
In the Spotlight
Our previous newsletter suggested that the 1,700 level was critical support for gold. The precious metal breached this level and is now likely to act as resistance. Rates are still a market driver and should continue to serve as a headwind. As such, resistance levels will be compelling levels to watch.
