Stock market News Live Updates Shares of stock have risen as investors look up, marking the biggest jump since 1982.

Shares rose on Wednesday as investors watched a new report on inflation, marking another decade of high inflation. Once again, this comes a day after Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Paul reaffirmed that the Central Bank needed to control inflation.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) grew by 7.0% by the end of 2021, the fastest pace since 1982. This is in line with Bloomberg data and accelerated by a 6.8% increase in November. Consumer prices rose slightly by 0.5% or 0.4% over the previous month, marking the 18th consecutive month of price increases.

Excluding food and energy prices, the so-called core consumer price index rose 5.5 percent in December last year, up from 1991. Signs in at high speed.

Wednesday’s market activity followed a rally on Tuesday, with markets at least temporarily relieved. In a hearing before the Senate Banking Committee, Powell reiterated that the central bank would use its policy tools to tackle inflation.

“If we see inflation at a higher level, than expected, if we have to raise interest rates from time to time, we will continue,” Paul said during the hearing.

The central bank has already announced in a telegraph that it will raise interest rates three times this year to near zero. However, some major Wall Street companies have predicted that the federation will increase prices four times compared to current inflation.

But while Paul doubled the federation’s goal of curbing inflation and using interest rates as a tool, he went on to say a little more about the federation’s plans to begin reducing its debt to nearly $ 9 trillion. The minutes of the federation’s December meeting Last week, Central Bank officials began debating the federation’s balance sheet after nearly two years of purchasing assets to support markets during the outbreak. Paul reiterated that he expects the audit process to begin this year.

BRI Capital Markets chief investment strategist Brian Belsky told Yahoo Finance Live on Tuesday that “I think the biggest issue in the minds of most investors around the world is ‘policy mistake’.” . “Mr. Powell went out today and said this is going to be a process … I think this will take a long time, and I think this will reassure investors.”

Despite high credit costs and tight financial conditions, fluctuations in U.S. stocks and technology stocks, especially in recent times, saw the reversal of Tuesday’s session, with better performance on the tech-heavy Nasdaq Compass.

“Technology is not a short-term risk because growth is far from over, but it is one of the easiest assessments,” Simon Hayman, a prospector for Global Investment Strategy, told Yaho Finance Live on Tuesday. “And of course those high-tech and big tech stocks were probably a little expensive by the end of last year and early 2022.
