The S&P 500 and Dow climbed in choppy trade on Friday after April inflation statistics showed inflation expanded broadly as expected, bolstering hopes that the Federal Reserve may decrease rates this year.
The Commerce Department said that the Fed’s favorite inflation barometer, the Personal Consumption Expenditure Index, climbed 0.3% in April, matching analyst estimates and holding steady from March. The annual rate was 2.7%, surpassing estimates, while core PCE rose 0.2% monthly, below 0.3%.

Lower U.S. government yields lifted megacap growth stocks, including Apple and Nvidia, by 0.34% and 1.4%, respectively.
Rate-sensitive utilities and real estate climbed, while S&P 500 tech jumped 0.3% after falling 2.4%.
After the data publication, September rate reduction predictions crossed 50% from 48.7%. Most of the week, CME Fed Watch anticipated below 50%.

“After a few months of rising, inflation is finally going sideways, and hopefully we will resume a downtrend… but markets will be relieved because they are living in fear of bad numbers,” said Marc Ostwald, chief economist and global strategist at ADM Investor Services International.
