September E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures are trading higher shortly after the cash market opening. The early strength is being fueled by weaker-than-expected U.S. consumer inflation data, which drove down U.S. Treasury yields.

The consumer inflation miss combined with yesterday’s producer inflation miss suggests the economy may not be running as hot as previously expected. This could slow down the pace of future Fed rate hikes.

A rebound in Apple shares is also helping to generate upside momentum in the index.
