    Morning Report 14 Jun 24: Wall Street celebrates on lower inflation numbers

    US stocks reached new highs as inflation fears eased, with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq showing modest gains despite a slight drop in the Dow Jones. Lower inflation, indicated by flat consumer prices and declining producer prices, provided relief. However, industrial shares lagged due to economic slowdown concerns. In Europe, political instability and auto sector worries led to market declines, particularly in France and Germany. Meanwhile, Australian shares are expected to dip slightly amid mixed global signals.

    Morning Report 13 Jun 24: Inflation relief pushes Wall Street to record highs

    US stocks surged to record highs due to lower-than-expected inflation figures, leading to optimism in the market. The S&P 500 and the NASDAQ were up, while the Dow Jones lagged slightly. Inflation data showed minimal monthly increases, the slowest since August 2021, suggesting progress in controlling inflation. The Federal Reserve maintained interest rates but hinted at fewer rate cuts in 2024, causing mixed reactions in the market. European markets also saw gains, driven by improved US inflation data, although some local challenges persisted. Meanwhile, Australian shares are expected to rise ahead of crucial jobs data, reflecting global economic trends.

Enjoyable, if fairly superficial

A fun light-hearted listen, with likeable presenters, even if they can be a little dopey sometimes. Pretty limited in terms of novel information or incisive analysis but a nice way to keep a finger on the pulse of the daily market.

Podcast editing

The sharemarket updates and company analysis are informative but overuse of the phrases ‘we have seen’ and ‘we saw’ by the commentators grates on my nerves

Transcript needed

It would be good to have transcript displayed . As English as a second language listener, it is too fast 🥲
