Tech stocks outperformed pulling NASDAQ ahead of the other 2, while investors continue to contemplate if the inflation will be able to curb the rebound from the increase in economic activity from pandemic recovery.

The data presented last Tuesday about consumer confidence dropping last April even after most of the pandemic standards are being pulled back is also affecting the movement in the market. FOMC continues to be firm that such inflation is short-term and does not require policy updates as of the moment. They also mentioned that it will definitely be part of the upcoming meetings but implementation will depend of the flow of data.

Stocks continue to trade in a choppy market with a mixture of ups and downs. Traders are given a heads up that these inflationary pressure and price increase signals are just part of the economic recovery.
