    10-Yr: -28/32..3.064%.. USD/JPY: 137.53.. EUR/USD: 1.0029

    Total CPI increased 1.3% month-over-month in June ( consensus 1.1%) after increasing 1.0% in May. Core CPI, which excludes food and energy, increased 0.7% month-over-month in June ( consensus 0.6%) after increasing 0.6% in May. On a year-over-year basis, total CPI was up 9.1%, versus 8.6% in May, and core CPI was up 5.9%, versus 6.0% in May.

    The key takeaway from the report is that inflation pressures remained broad-based and elevated even when accounting for the slight dip in the yr/yr core inflation rate. Meanwhile, total CPI accelerated to 9.1% yr/yr, representing the fastest rate of increase since late 1981.

    The food index was up 1.0% month-over-month in June and up 9.1% year-over-year.
    The energy index was up 7.5% month-over-month in June and up 41.6% year-over-year.
    The shelter index was up 0.6% month-over-month in June and up 5.6% year-over-year.
    The used cars and trucks index was up 1.6% month-over-month and up 7.1% year-over-year.

    Yield Check:

    Netflix was up after it confirmed it’s partnering with Microsoft (MSFT 252.72, -0.95, -0.4%) on a new ad supported subscription plan.

    Twitter was up big after filing a lawsuit against Elon Musk to enforce the merger agreement, according to CNBC.

    The 2s10s spread became more inverted today, reaching its lowest level since late 2000.
    The 2-yr note yield rose 10 basis points to 3.13% and the 10-yr note yield fell five basis points to 2.90%.


    The Treasury Budget showed an $88.8 bln deficit in June versus a $174.16 bln deficit in the same period a year ago. The budget data is not seasonally adjusted, so the June deficit cannot be compared to the May deficit of $66.2 bln.

    The Fed’s June Beige Book described overall economic expansion since May as modest with several Districts reporting signs of a slowdown and growing fears of a recession in a few other Districts. Consumer spending moderated while auto sales remained weak due to low inventories. Hospitality and tourism saw healthy activity while manufacturing was mixed. Employment rose at a modest to moderate pace and wages continued growing in most Districts. Substantial price increases were reported across the board.
