In May, the U.S. CPI exceeded the previous high and recorded a year-on-year record of 8.6%, hitting a new high in nearly 40 years; the year-on-year growth rate of the core CPI fell slightly under the influence of the base, but it was still higher than expected. Geopolitical conflicts pushed up energy prices and the rebound in durable goods prices was the main reason.

The short-term U.S. inflation situation in the future is hard to be optimistic. With the current supply-side cost shock pushing up inflation and demand-side durable goods prices continuing to expand, the necessity and feasibility of the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates intensively and intensively are on the rise. We will continue to raise interest rates by at least 50BP in June and July, and the possibility of raising interest rates by 75BP is not ruled out. Before the interest rate hike is implemented in June, 10Y US bond yields are still facing upward pressure.
