What a difference a day can make, especially when there’s a surprising economic report that soothes investors’ fears.

Stocks that had been among the worst performers of 2022 are rising the most today after a closely followed inflation gauge rose less than expected.

The Consumer Price Index climbed 0.4% during October from the previous month, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That was lower than the 0.6% expected by economists polled by the Wall Street Journal. The year-over-year CPI increase of 7.7% was an improvement from 8.2% in September.

These numbers caused yields on two-year and 10-year U.S. Treasury securities to show their largest one-day declines in over a decade amid strong buying activity.

The euphoria carried over to the stock market. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +3.70% was up 926 points, or 2.8%, at 11 a.m. ET to 33,439.81, while the S&P 500 SPX, +5.54% soared 4.4% and the Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, +31.35% fared even better, with a 5.8% increase.

All 11 sectors of the S&P 500 were up significantly, led by the consumer discretionary sector, which includes Amazon.com Inc. AMZN, +12.18%. The stock surged 13.4%.
