However, core CPI, at 2.4% YoY, was the strongest reading since late 2008, and futures traded down to the bottom of the day’s range.
Futures traded on their lows for the session prior to the pit open. After a disappointing PPI release, futures moved progressively higher throughout the trading session, closing off mid-morning highs.
