S&P 500 didnt change much as u.s consumer prices increase

S&P 500: little changed as U.S. consumer prices increase – 10th February

After briefly hitting a record high after the opening bell on Wednesday, the S&P 500 fell as data showed that consumer prices had climbed, then reversed course slightly in the afternoon session.

Figures released by the Labor Department today highlighted that consumer prices increased by 0.3% in January from a revised sum of 0.2% in December.

Many also attribute the decline to the fact that traders may have closed some of their positions as they wait to hear from Federal Reserve Chair, Jerome Powell who is set to speak later today.

The Dow Jones managed to increase despite the uncertainty and was trading 0.27% higher, while the S&P 500 and NASDAQ were up 0.11% and 0.10% of writing.
