Market Focus  

October 12, 2018
The first thing to watch Friday is how the international markets reacted to a second day of heavy selling in the stock market. The selling is tied to controversy over Federal Reserve rate hikes which in turn are ultimately tied to the risk of rising inflation. Import and export prices will update cross-border inflation pressures, which have been very subdued, while the consumer sentiment report will update inflation expectations which have been stable though inching higher.
