Futures Look to Rebound After Challenging September, Inflation Still an Issue

U.S. stocks were up on Friday’s premarket trading after the disappointing end to the third quarter of 2021.

Investors are hoping that the markets overcorrected in September, which was the worse month for tech stocks since the beginning of the pandemic. Energy prices, slowing growth, risks in China, and supply chain disruptions all contributed to the decline.

The Personal consumption expenditures (PCE) Price Index, a key measurement of inflation posted a 3.6% year-over-year gain, indicating inflation is still rampant in the economy.
