Markets up, Inflation Down

Last month, we saw gross domestic product grow by 2.6% in Q3, the first positive GDP growth in 2022.

This week, we received more positive macroeconomic news. The Consumer Price Index reading for October was 7.7%, down from 8.2% in September.

This comes on the back of the Dow Jones posting its strongest October in its 126-year history, and its strongest individual month since 1976.

However, despite inflation cooling and chatter of recession on hold, sentiment took a significant dip this week, with 47% of investors noting bearishness — up from 32.9% the week prior.
