Inflation data for October is sending stocks to the moon today, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI) up 932 points at midday, while the Nasdaq Composite Index (IXIC) and S&P 500 Index (SPX) eye their own massive gains. The Dow is heading toward its best single-session gain since June 2020, while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq cruise toward their best month since April 2020.

The consumer price index (CPI) for October rose 0.4% for the month and 7.7% year-over-year, which is lower than the 0.6% and 7.9% anticipated by analysts, while core CPI data came in below expectations as well. Investors are hopeful that this means inflation has peaked, and bond yields are diving lower in response, with the 10-year Treasury yield dropping below the key 4% level.
