With less than 24 hours to go until the release of the June consumer price index, the S&P 500 has been fluctuating and trading near 4,400. Two-year government bond yields, which are more sensitive to impending Fed decisions, rose while remaining well below the 5% threshold. The dollar changed little.

“I expect it to be a quieter day,” said Alex Coffey, senior trading strategist at TD Ameritrade. “Now that we’re at such a fork in the road, it seems, where we still have the Fed fighting inflation, inflation is showing signs of moderation. It could go either way: we’re either going to navigate this soft landing and everything will be fine, or we’re not going, and we’re going to start to see things showing signs of going downhill.”

In company news, Inc. recovered. after a 2% drop on Monday as the company stepped down from its annual Prime Day event. JPMorgan Chase & Co. rose after being raised to buy off the hold at Jefferies.
