Cac 40: Paris bourse feverishly awaits US inflation and takes no risk

(BFM Bourse) – The CAC 40 is in balance ahead of the release of US inflation figures for the month of May, which will be revealed this afternoon.

After regaining a little risk appetite on Monday, the Paris stock market is back in “pause” mode ahead of the release of US inflation figures this afternoon. The CAC 40 advance is steady at 7250.35 points mid-session on Tuesday.

Market participants therefore avoid taking risks before the publication of the consumer price index, the main measure of inflation, for the month of May at 2:30 p.m. Economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal expects a rate of 4% on an annual basis and a rate of 5.3% for the “core” figure, which excludes food and energy prices.

A publication that will be followed all the more as the Federal Reserve (Fed) begins a two-day meeting on Tuesday with a decision on its rates on Wednesday evening. For now, the market is based on the status quo. The European Central Bank (ECB) meeting follows on Thursday.
