What an action packed week if you’re into economic data (like we are). Pending Home Sales should be down a tad for June, and the Advanced GDP reading for Q2 is forecast to show economic growth even slower than it’s been. We’ll see what the Fed says about that, coming out of their FOMC Rate Decision meeting on Wednesday.
The week ends with the July Employment Report, expected to register 188,000 new Nonfarm Payrolls, as job creation holds to a moderate pace. The Unemployment Rate is predicted to inch down to 7.5%. Inflation should be OK, according to Core PCE Prices, and manufacturing should show growth in the ISM Index and Chicago PMI. Enough data for you?
