Tourists have fled the place of energy. A bank says it could close too soon.

Unpaid price directions are almost exactly traded. But perhaps investors have fled too quickly. Maxwell Greenakoff, an equity strategist at French bank BNP Paribas, said the price space was looking compelling to move into a second-quarter earnings season.

Another notable trend is that while homeowners are struggling with surprisingly high interest rates, regional banks – also related to the real estate market – are holding their own.

Core CPI, which excludes food and energy, is expected to drop from 0.6% to 0.5%. TD Securities strategists say the headline figure will rise for the first time this year as gas prices rise and still-high food prices and housing inflation offset the decline in air fares and the continued decline in used car prices.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics says a statement circulated on the Internet claiming that the CPI has risen more than expected is a hoax.
