According to the latest GDPNow report published by the  Federal Reserve Bank  of Atlanta, the real GDP in the US  is expected to expand by 2.2% in the third quarter of the year compared to 1.9% announced last week.

“An increase in the nowcast of third-quarter real personal consumption expenditures growth from 2.7 percent to 3.4 percent after this morning’s retail sales release from the U.S. Census Bureau was partly offset by a decline in the nowcast of third-quarter real gross private domestic investment growth from 0.5 percent to -0.5 percent after the retail sales and inventories releases from the Census Bureau and the industrial production report from the Federal Reserve Board of Governors,” Atlanta Fed explained in its press release.
