    ISM's non-manufacturing purchasing managers' index showed a contraction in the services sector, adding to hopes that the Federal Reserve's rate hikes are making progress in taming inflation.

    Fed Chairman Jerome Powell on Tuesday stressed the need for the central bank to be free of political influence while it tackles persistently high inflation.

    A key gauge of US inflation posted a moderate increase in December. Excluding food and energy, the consumer price index rose 0.3% last month and was up 5.7% from a year earlier, according to a US Labor Department report on Thursday.
