“We expect core (“control”) retail sales in June to increase solidly by 0.4% m-om, consistent with firming consumer spending activity during Q2.”

“For industrial production, we expect a healthy 0.9% m-o-m gain, rebounding from the 0.1% decline in May.”

“In addition to retail sales and industrial product, the Empire State and Philly Fed surveys released this week will provide the first indicators of manufacturer sentiment in July.
