U.S. Economic Update: July 2016

Primarily driven by very strong consumption growth, activity looks to have picked up in the June quarter, after a sluggish start to the year.

Key points:

  • Activity indicators point to stronger GDP growth in the June quarter.
  • Concerns over the labour market have subsided after the June employment report.
  • Brexit is not expected to have a significant impact on the US. However, it adds to risks and uncertainty and so the Fed is likely to stay on hold until December.
