Wall Street took inflation data badly, Stock markets S&P 500 and Nasdaq down, consumer price inflation

US inflation came in ahead of expectations on Wednesday, with the headline rate of 2.1% and a core figure, which excludes energy and food, at 1.8%. Both were stronger than forecast.

Wall Street took the news badly, though not not to such an extent as stock futures suggested. The three main US indices opened around 0.45% lower. Both US Treasury yields and the US dollar climbed higher.
