The overall market sentiment is cautious this Tuesday morning, with U.S. stock futures hovering slightly below the flatline. Investors are adopting a wait-and-see approach ahead of two key events this week:

  • Federal Reserve Policy Decision: The Fed's two-day policy meeting concludes on Wednesday, and their decision on interest rates will be closely scrutinized. Any indication of a more aggressive rate hike to combat inflation could dampen market enthusiasm.
  • Key Inflation Data: The release of the Consumer Price Index (CPI) data, also on Wednesday, will provide insights into inflation levels. Higher-than-expected inflation could spook investors and lead to a market correction.

Apple Bucks the Trend:

While the broader market is treading water, Apple is a bright spot. Their stock price is edging higher on the back of positive news:

  • OpenAI Partnership: Apple announced a partnership with OpenAI, a leading research lab in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI). This collaboration could lead to the integration of powerful AI features like ChatGPT into future iPhones.
  • Analyst Optimism: Market analysts are largely bullish on this development, viewing it as a significant step forward for Apple's technological edge and a potential boost for iPhone sales.

Looking Ahead:

The upcoming Fed decision and CPI data will be the main events driving the market direction in the next couple of days. Apple's AI play will also be closely monitored to see if it translates into a sustained stock price increase.
