Atlanta Fed: Q2 GDP Forecast Upgraded To 4.7%! (Is The Fed Going To Take Us Higher?)

The Atlanta’s Fed’s GDP tracker has upgraded Q2 GDP to … 4.7%!

The GDPNow model estimate for real GDP growth (seasonally adjusted annual rate) in the second quarter of 2018 is 4.7 percent on June 19, down from 4.8 percent on June 14. The nowcast of second-quarter real GDP growth decreased 0.2 percentage points after the Federal Reserve Board’s industrial production release on Friday, June 15, as a decline in the nowcast of real gross private domestic investment growth from 10.9 percent to 9.2 percent more than offset a slight increase in the nowcast of real consumer spending growth from 3.6 percent to 3.7 percent. After this morning’s new residential construction release from the U.S. Census Bureau, the nowcast of second-quarter real residential investment growth increased from 0.3 percent to 2.9 percent.

Fed Chair Jerome Powell: “Boom shaka-laka-laka Boom shaka-laka-laka.”
