Historically this is still quite low — and still below the Fed’s 2% target rate — but it did draw attention to something we’d seemingly long forgotten about: inflation. Well, pre-market trading activity has sunk into the red upon two new monthly economic reads: Retail Sales and Producer Price Index, both for the month of January.”
