Trust’s Keith Lerner said that in the fourth quarter, high inflation and a Fed intent on stopping price hikes, no matter what that means for the economy, will likely continue to weigh on markets. He added that oversold conditions make the market vulnerable to a sharp short-term rebound as a result of the good news.
“I think we could be set up for some kind of delay, but the underlying trend at this point is still a downtrend and choppy waters to continue,” Lerner said.
On the economic front, Markit and ISM manufacturing PMI data are due on Monday along with construction spending.
