Risk assets only partially reflect the better recent news on US inflation – Goldman Sachs

Goldman Sachs (GS) recently came out with its take on the recently easing inflation signals from the United States.

The investment bank initially said, “Price inflation is slowing sharply,” before stating that over the past two months, sequential core PCE (Personal Consumption Expenditure) inflation has averaged 2.6% at an annual rate – half the pace of the prior year.

“If wage growth and core inflation continue to come down, Fed officials will become gradually more tolerant of easier conditions,” adds GS.

Goldman Sachs also mentioned that core PCE inflation should drop under 3% this year while also adding, “Falling shelter inflation will help.”
