The US economy is expected to grow by 6.8% in the first quarter of 2021, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s latest Nowcasting Report showed on Friday. 

“News from this week’s data releases increased the nowcast for 2021:Q1 by 0.3 percentage point,” the NY said in its publication. “Positive surprises from ISM survey price, ADP employment, and exports data accounted for most of the increase.”
