World stock markets pushed higher Thursday as investors shopped for bargains following a brutal correction sparked by inflation fears.The U.S. Wednesday reported a surprisingly strong rise in consumer prices, briefly spooking markets, but a weak retail sales report suggested that fears of an overheating American economy may be premature, analysts said.Some analysts have suggested that the Fed will not be pushed into more aggressive rate hikes than the market has so far anticipated.On currency markets the dollar took a hit across the board, with the yen at fresh 15-month highs, while the euro built on Wednesday's gains that came after figures showed solid German economic growth.Although higher inflation and bond yields would normally be positive for the dollar, the analysts said other options were more attractive.
