Stock Market Update Wednesday, June 12th, 2019

Stocks dropped for the 2nd day in a row.

CPI data was this focus in early trading. And data showed that consumer prices rose just 0.1% last month. This was in line with expectations.

The low inflation reading (combined with a weaker job market) has traders believing that the Fed will cut rates this year. According to the CME Group FedWatch tool, traders believe that there is an 85.3% chance the Fed will lower rates by July.

The major indices traded back and forth at the open, then saw a small drop late morning.

There was another small push lower during lunch. Then stocks traded sideways for the rest of the session.
