Goldman Sachs is optimistic about U.S. inflation, believing it will ease in the coming months.


After recent high US inflation data post-rate cut talks, market sentiment is pessimistic, yet Goldman Sachs remains optimistic about the future.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released the recent CPI data for the United States this Wednesday, showing that the CPI increase for March was significantly higher than market expectations. The unadjusted monthly increase was 0.4%, with the year-over-year growth reaching 3.5%, which is above the expected 4.3% and marks an acceleration from the 3.2% increase observed in February.

The higher-than-expected CPI significantly impacted the market and investors' expectations and confidence in interest rate cuts. Although many experts and institutions had issued warnings that rates might not be cut or the number of cuts could be reduced, the actual data release was still astonishing. The widely anticipated rate cut in June was postponed to September.

The inflation data, being much higher than expected, has made many investors pessimistic about the future. However, Goldman Sachs holds a relatively optimistic view. Despite current data indicating persistent inflation hard to dial back, Goldman Sachs expects inflation to ease in the coming months, projecting that the U.S. CPI will drop to 2.4% this year, below the current annual rate of 3.5%.

In December last year, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell publicly mentioned that the Fed was considering interest rate cuts in the future, without making any explicit promises or details. Since then, discussions regarding the number, magnitude, and timing of rate cuts have been very heated. Despite this, voices have consistently mentioned that rates are likely not to be cut or may even be raised, including former Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers.

The End



Inflation refers to the phenomenon where the purchasing power of a country's (or region's) currency decreases, leading to a general rise in the prices of goods and services. It is reflected in the fact that, over a certain period, the same amount of money can only buy fewer goods and services.
