Macroeconomic Analysis

PCE Price Index

April’s data on the Fed’s preferred inflation measure, the personal consumption expenditures (PCE) price index, suggests that the central bank will likely maintain current interest rates for now. While the data doesn’t worsen the outlook, it shows slow progress towards the Fed’s inflation targets.

According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the headline PCE price index increased by 0.3% in April, marking the slowest monthly rise since December. Year on year, the index rose by 2.7%, compared to the Fed’s 2% annual inflation target.

After a sharp decline in the second half of 2023, the downward trend in inflation has largely stalled in 2024. April’s figures continue this pattern without indicating a troubling acceleration that might force the Fed to reconsider raising interest rates.

April also saw steady, albeit slower, growth in income and spending, which is a positive sign for the Fed. These figures suggest a resilient U.S. labor market and an economy gradually cooling off from previous overheated conditions.

Fed officials have stressed the need for more concrete evidence of inflation moving towards their 2% target before adjusting interest rates. Although Friday’s data does not provide the necessary confidence, it also does not complicate the current economic picture.

The Federal Open Market Committee’s next meeting is scheduled for June 12. As of Friday morning, interest-rate futures suggested a 99% probability that rates would remain unchanged at that meeting.

Other Economic Indicators

  • Core PCE Index: The core personal consumption expenditures (PCE) price index, which excludes food and energy, slightly missed expectations in April. According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the core PCE price index increased by 0.24917% in April, which rounds to 0.2%. This was just below the economists’ consensus forecast of a 0.255% rise, which rounds to 0.3%. In March, the core PCE price index rose by 0.33416%, rounding to 0.3%, so the April slowdown to 0.24917% is notable. On a year-over-year basis, the core PCE price index increased by 2.8% in both March and April, matching the consensus expectations.
  • Personal Spending: According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, consumer spending for personal consumption in the US reached $20.1 trillion in April, an increase of 0.2% but short of expectations of a 0.3% rise. Personal income also increased 0.3% to $23.8 trillion in April, in line with expectations. Personal disposable income rose 0.2% to $20.8 trillion, with the savings rate remaining low at 3.6%, the same as March. Although increased consumer spending is positive for the economy, low savings rates indicate that consumers may be depleting their savings to maintain spending habits.
  • Manufacturing PMI S&P: The S&P Global US Manufacturing PMI for May increased to 51.3, up from 50.0 in April, signaling a modest enhancement in the manufacturing sector’s health for the fourth time in the last five months. This figure surpassed the predicted reading of 50.9.
  • Manufacturing ISM: In May, the Manufacturing PMI dropped to 48.7 percent, a 0.5 percentage point decrease from April’s 49.2 percent. Despite this decline, the overall economy has remained in expansion for 49 consecutive months, following a brief contraction in April 2020. Historically, a Manufacturing PMI® above 42.5 percent signals economic expansion over time.
  • Service PMI S&P: S&P Global’s May U.S. Services PMI reached 54.8, the highest in a year, marking the 16th consecutive month of expansion. The U.S. service sector saw significant growth, rebounding from April’s dip due to a surge in new business, alongside a similar uptick in manufacturing. However, services employment declined for the second month, as companies hesitated to hire amid uncertainty. Despite this, wage pressures drove up input costs, leading to a faster increase in selling prices and highlighting persistent inflation concerns.
  • Service PMI ISM: The Institute of Supply Management (ISM) has published its May services purchasing managers’ index (PMI). The headline composite index rose to 53.8, exceeding the forecast of 51.0. This is the highest level the index has reached in the past nine months, signaling a return to expansion after a brief period in contraction.
  • JOLTs Job Opening: U.S. job openings dropped more than anticipated in April, reducing the number of available positions per job-seeker to its lowest point in almost three years. This decline indicates a softening labor market, potentially aiding the Federal Reserve’s efforts to control inflation. According to the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS), job openings fell by 296,000 to 8.059 million at the end of April, the lowest level since February 2021.

BTC Price Analysis

BTC’s price surpassed market predictions by climbing 5% over the past week, reaching $71K, nearing the key resistance level of $72K. The overall market sentiment remains bullish, with BTC trending within a flag pattern that suggests a potential 45% rally.

A more realistic target is a rise to the current all-time high of $73,650. Surpassing this level would set a new ATH for BTC.
