Inflation Has Little to No Impact on Current Investor Sentiment


This week’s Sentiment Survey special question asked AAII members how inflation is influencing their sentiment toward the stock market. Nearly 70% of all respondents said inflation was either having very little or no impact. Many of these respondents described inflation as low or non-existent, while others think the Federal Reserve is keeping it under control. Approximately 8% say inflation is rising or that they expect it to rise.

Here is a sampling of the responses:

  • “Not much. I believe inflation will stay within a low range and that will keep interest rates lows for the foreseeable future.”
  • “It is not. At this point, I think a little inflation might be good.”
  • “Very little. I expect a modest increase in inflation.”
  • “Rising interest rates are more of a relevant factor for me.”
  • “In spite of what is said, inflation really exists.”
