CPI is Cool, but the Fed Meeting Minutes are a Wet Blanket
Midweek Market Update April 12, 2023
Just a quick look at today's action as an unscheduled travel day kept me mostly away from the markets.
CPI data came a little cooler than expected but comments out of the Federal Reserve sent the markets lower.

Also of note, today we’re seeing continued selling into the close instead of the late-day rally we have become accustomed to over the last couple of weeks. That could be an early change of character.
SPY is trying to stay above the 8-day heading into the close. Not especially damaging action, but it does raise the antennae a bit.
QQQ is weaker and trading below the 8-day, the ATH AVWAP (purple line), and the pivot zone (blue shaded area). The 21-day MA around 311.40 is the next potential support.
Let’s see what tomorrow and the PPI data bring. And we’ll be back with a full note on Friday for the Weekend Market Review.
