Key regional surveys now show that supply conditions have improved enough to push down margins.
The upturn in jobless claims since the spring is overstated by seasonal problems; the labor market is fine.
Capital goods orders are rising at a decent, steady pace, but inflation is offsetting the gains, for now.
Chair Powell likely will reiterate that the Fed is now data-dependent; 75bp is not certain for September.
Student loan forgiveness will not materially boost growth or inflation, or threaten the public finances.
Imports appear to be falling quite quickly; a drop in the trade deficit will boost Q3 GDP growth.
Business lending standards are tightening, but credit growth is still strong, for now.
Plunging new home sales are dragging down prices, and hurting service sector activity surveys.
Upside risk for July durable goods orders today, but the housing collapse is worsening by the month.
Net trade and inventories look set to drive up Q3 GDP growth; we tentatively look for about 5%.
Imports are falling as demand for inventories fades; retailers over-ordered and now have excess inventory.
New home sales likely fell again in July, and prices are now under severe pressure as supply mounts.
The current pace of unit labor costs growth, if sustained, is incompatible with the inflation target…
…But wage growth will slow next year, and productivity growth will rebound.
More immediately, disinflation over the next year will be driven by margin re-compression.
The Fed followed the script, but Chair Powell was careful to avoid making predictions for September.
With eight weeks of softer data to come before the next meeting, we think 50bp is a solid September bet.
The economy likely shrank at a 0.5% rate in the second quarter, thanks entirely to a swing in inventories.
Flattered by higher oil prices, but expect Q2 GDP forecasts to move up nonetheless
The Fed is boxed-in to a 75bp hike today, and the latest inflation data likely will keep the talk hawkish.
Things will change by September, but Chair Powell can’t claim victory yet, after the "transitory" debacle.
Downside risk for durable goods orders and pending home sales today; the housing crunch continues.
Home prices are falling; don’t be deceived by the high year-over-year rate...
Plunging sales and soaring inventory will drive a shift to a new, lower equilibrium level of prices.
Expect a modest bounce in the July Philly Fed, and further signs of easing supply constraints.
Capital spending plans have been slashed since the invasion of Ukraine and the surge in rates...
But the fundamental need to rebuild the capital stock remains urgent; look for a late summer rebound.
Homebuilders have finally got the message; demand has tanked, and construction has to fall sharply.
Consumption likely rose at a 1.4% annualized rate in Q2; not bad, under the circumstances.
Non-auto manufacturing is sliding towards recession, but it is not representative of the whole economy.
The plunge in energy prices means that the July PPI likely will rise by only a couple tenths.
Unexpected surges in an array of unconnected components lifted the June CPI; likely noise not signal.
Rents likely will rise strongly for a few more months, but should then slow.
The June PPI should confirm that margins have peaked, and might be falling already.
Net foreign trade and inventories depressed GDP growth in H1, but will reverse, at least in part, in H2.
The case for a hefty rebound in headline Q2 GDP is quite strong, though final demand likely will slow.
Expect weaker JOLTS job openings and ISM services today, but supply constraints probably eased again.
QT and higher rates will trigger a slowdown in loan growth and bank deposit growth...
...But the $3.5T in excess household deposits is real, and it can be spent, if people so choose.
Net foreign trade looks set to add about one percent- age point to Q2 GDP growth, and maybe more in Q3.
The first quarter’s massive surge in the trade deficit won’t be repeated in the second quarter…
…But the correction will be smaller than we hoped, so the 3.2pp hit to Q1 GDP will only partly reverse.
Consumer confidence likely fell sharply this month, responding to gas prices and the stock market drop.
The downturn in core inflation is set to stall over the summer, while the headline rate will hit new highs…
…But core-core prices are now rising less quickly, thanks to slowing wage gains.
The Fed will hike by 50bp this week and in July, markets permitting, but we expect 25bp in September.
We expect a 0.5% increase in the core CPI, led by rents, airline fares, and new vehicle prices...
...Behind this noise, though, the core-core CPI might now be slowing on a sequential basis.
The moderation in wage growth probably is reducing inflation pressure in an array of services components.
