Consumer sentiment made a stark improvement on last month, improving in all three categories. Most notable data points include the sizable 14% rise in one-year business conditions. In addition, year-ahead inflation expectations fell from 4.9% to 4.6% - the lowest reading over the past 15 months. Despite the optimism around the year-ahead measure of inflation, the long run inflation expectations remained at 3%, most likely reflecting the fact that inflation is anticipated to remain sticky for an extended period of time.

The Michigan sentiment report appeared not long after the US PPI data revealed a higher print, sending the dollar higher as more signs appear that the Fed’s work isn’t done just yet. The positive sentiment figures produced another short-term push higher in the greenback.
