Here are the key events taking place on Friday that could impact trading.

PRODUCER PRICES: The Bureau of Labor Statistics is expected to say that PPI rose 0.2% month-over-month in November according to Refinitiv forecasts.

That’s unchanged from October’s cooler-than-expected print. 

Year-over-year, prices paid by wholesalers are anticipated to jump 7.2%, down sharply from an 8.0% pop in October and the fifth straight month of slowing growth.

It would also be the lowest reading since May 2021, supporting the peak inflation theme and cementing expectations for smaller Fed rate hikes. 

If you exclude food and energy costs, core producer prices are also anticipated to rise 0.2% monthly in November after remaining flat the prior month. Year-over-year look for growth in core PPI to cool to 5.9% in November, the lowest since June 2021 and the eighth straight month of slowing growth from a record 9.7% surge in March.

CONSUMER SENTIMENT: The University of Michigan releases its preliminary index of consumer sentiment for December. It’s expected to inch higher to 56.9 after falling more than expected in November on inflation worries and rising interest rates.

Consumer sentiment tumbled to an all-time low of 50.0 in June when record-high gasoline prices had consumers panicked about inflation.
