Markets had forecasted the PPI to increase by 0.5% in March. with an annual increase of 3.8%. However, the rise suggests that inflation may continue in this trajectory.

Many will now begin to look toward the Fed to see if any will be taken if this theme continues throughout the rest of the year.

The S&P 500 was up 0.33% as of writing.
