Social Security just announced an 8.7 percent cost of living adjustment, the largest inflation adjustment to benefits in four decades — a welcome development for millions of older Americans struggling to keep up with fast-rising living costs.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 500 points at the starting bell, down 1.7% and undercutting its Sept. 30th low. The S&P 500 index sank 2.3% and the NASDAQ composite swooned 3%.

Then Stocks Soared Despite the Hotter-Than-Expected Inflation Report

U.S. equities closed out the day noticeably higher, ending six-straight days of declines, despite the release of today’s key inflation data. The markets seemed to shrug off another hotter-than-expected consumer price inflation (CPI) report, which boosted expectations that the Fed will have to remain aggressive with its monetary policy tightening plans.

  1. Stock Reversal

    US stocks plunged on Thursday, and then soared after September’s CPI report showed inflation continues to hit levels not seen in four decades.

    The S&P 500 was down 2.4% as its low of the day, before it recovered all of those losses and surged as much as 2%. The reversal came after the S&P 500 tested 3,500, briefly hitting a low of 3,491. The 3,500 level represents a 50% retracement of the March 2020 low at about 2,200 and the January high of about 4,800.
