MBAVPRCH Index (Apr 25)
Definately looking weak. Winter is over, and tax rebates are in the mail.
MBAVREFI Index (Apr)
Settling down as well.
ADP Employment Change (Apr)
Employment growth continues to slow over time but not yet signaling recession.
Non-farm payrolls muddling through as well.
GDP QoQ Annualized (1Q A)
Still in the black, and my guess is it’s likely to be revised up with the March trade numbers that are due in in a couple of weeks.
Personal Consumption (1Q A)
Also holding up better than expected, and rebates are on the way.
GDP Price Index (1Q A)
Better than expected, still high, and with crude continuing to move up it’s going up as well.
Core PCE QoQ (1Q A)
The trend is up, and the Fed is monitoring it closely…
Employment Cost Index (1Q)
Looks under control, but not a brake on inflation.
Chicago Purchasing Manager (Apr)
A touch better than expected, but still trending lower.
Also not down to recession levels yet.
FOMC Rate Decision (Apr 30)
