NY Fed’s GDP Nowcast for Q2 2020 stands at -15.3%


The US economy is expected to contract by 15.3% in the second quarter before expanding by 10.1% in the third quarter, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s latest Nowcasting Report showed on Friday. 

“News from this week’s data releases decreased the nowcast for 2020:Q2 by 0.2 percentage point and decreased the nowcast for 2020:Q3 by 0.3 percentage point,” the NY Fed said in its weekly publication. “Surprises from the JOLTS and PPI data releases accounted for most of the decline.”
