Chicago, Illinois, Sep 29, 2022 (News Direct via Comtex) -- --News Direct--

The consumer price index (CPI) report issued last week sent the world’s markets scrambling toward their yearly lows.

The report indicated the presence of rising inflation despite a steady increase in federal rate hikes throughout the year. Specifically, the CPI reading came in at 8.3% in August, a percentage increase largely influenced by the rising prices of energy around the globe. In response to this, the Federal Reserve issued yet another rate hike by three-quarters of a percent.

“We have to get inflation behind us. I wish there was a painless way to do that. There isn’t,” Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell said.

Cboe Global Markets Inc. (bats:CBOE) reports that all the exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and indices recorded in this series experienced a price decline last week. This finding perhaps indicates economic weakness extending onto a global scale.

The cryptocurrency market has largely mimicked its traditional counterparts, experiencing declines in both Bitcoin (crypto:BTC) and Ethereum (crypto:ETH). Perhaps notable is Solana ’s (crypto:SOL) resistance to this overall market decline; the coin experienced a slight price ascension last week.
