The three major indexes are off to a strong start in 2023. The S&P 500 climbed 2.67% this week, the Dow was up 2%, and the Nasdaq surged by 4.82%. The crypto market has also taken a bullish turn, as Bitcoin BTC/USD spiked to over $21,000 on Friday night.

Earlier this week, the Labor Department reported the consumer price index gained 6.5% in December, down from a 7.1% increase in November and in line with economist estimates. Thursday's report also showed Core CPI inflation, which excludes volatile food and energy prices, was 5.7% in December, also in line with the expectations of economists.
