✅ The U.S. added 235,000 jobs for August, helping the unemployment rate to fall to 5.2 percent last month.

✅ The credibility and independence of the Fed's policies are under market scrutiny due to reports of several Fed officials having large amount of personal investments in 2020.

✅ Rising commodity prices are one of the causes of persistently high inflation in the US economy.
